What is the best method to set the FontAwesome & Material Icons TypeFaces to a view added in the code?
Currently I added the MaterialIcons.ttf file to the Assets folder and created a new TypeFace:
B4X:
Private MyTypeface as Typeface
MyTypeface = Typeface.LoadFromAssets("B4X_MaterialIcons.ttf")
Label1.Text = Chr(0xE149)

Erels suggested way is to set a label in designer with this fontface. In code you then can get the fontface from the label loaded by the design and put it on other views.

Erel, will there be a more 'direct' method in the future?
Because I am using it in a CustomView class.
Adding it in the Designer no problem.
But I want the user also be able to add in the code.
Therefore I need to add the hidden Label and set the Typeface as a property.
