    Hi,

    Is there an option in Basic4ppc to change the font type? Visual basic has the option to select different font types, which I didn't find in Basic4pcc? What can be done to change fonts of labels, comboboxes and textboxes

    Regards,

    Yes, you can.

    With ChangeFont in the FormLib library.

    Best regards.

    Hello Klaus!

    Is there a way to change the font in general for the whole program?
    If you have a lot of components which have to be switched to use another font this is rather time consuming and messes the code up...
    So can I switch the font for the whole program somewhere?

    Thanks a lot!

    Best regards,

    Chris

    Hi CryoGenID,
    I don't know if there does exist a direct way doing it.

    But as a workaround you could use a subroutine like this:
    Code:
    [SIZE=2][FONT=Courier New][COLOR=#0000ff][SIZE=2][FONT=Courier New][COLOR=#0000ff][SIZE=2][FONT=Courier New][COLOR=#0000ff]Sub [/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE][FONT=Courier New][SIZE=2][FONT=Courier New][SIZE=2]ChangeFont(FntName)[/SIZE][/FONT]
    [/SIZE][/

    In the example below, when you click on a font name in the ListBox the font of the controls are changed.
    I hope this would help you.
