iOS Question Why UIFont Initialization Error in B4I here?


New Member
Hi. I have made a test app and defined a font in it.
I drew a circle with a "Hello World!" text.
It works fine in B4J and B4A.
In B4i, the error message below was shown:

*** mainpage: B4XPage_Created
Error occurred on line: 41 (B4XMainPage)
Object was not initialized (UIFont)

I tried many things to fix it but I failed.
I am a beginner. Could you help me?
Attached is the essential parts of the project.
I have deleted some files because the post refused to upload the whole project
