Android Question Reading in Font File

I have the following code to set the button font for a B4xDialog

B4X:
dialog.ButtonsFont = XUI.CreateFont(File.OpenInput(File.DirAssets,"myfont.ttf"),16)
When I execute this code I get the following error:

Access to the path 'C:\B4x Projects\My Android Project\MyProject\Objects\bin\extra\assets\myfont.ttf' is denied.

The font is in the assets folder. But access denied.

Any suggestions?

Figured it out. For reference for others the code for loading the font should be:

B4X:
dialog.ButtonsFont = XUI.CreateFont(Typeface.LoadFromAssets("myfont.ttf"),16)
The access denied was caused by windows locking the directory. Nothing to do with B4A.
