Description

Function GetFontName converts a system font ID to a font name.

An integer ID with a value representing a font in the current operating system.

FUNCTION GetFontName(
fontID  :INTEGER) : STRING;
def vs.GetFontName(fontID):
    return STRING

Parameters

fontID INTEGER Font ID value.

Remarks

(Orso 2016.03.05): Upon passing an illegal font index it returns:
  • before VW 2015: an empty string
  • after VW 2015: the string "System font regular".

After VW 2015 you can use VS:GetFontListSize to fetch the count of installed fonts. Before that you had to check in both negative and positive direction the whole integer limit: from -32767 to +32767.

Example

VectorScript

PROCEDURE Example;
VAR
str :STRING;
cnt :INTEGER;
BEGIN
FOR cnt := 0 TO 10 DO str := Concat(str, Chr(13), GetFontName(cnt));
AlrtDialog(str);
END;
RUN(Example);

Python

def Example():
	str = ''
	for cnt in range(0,10):
		str = vs.Concat(str, vs.Chr(13), vs.GetFontName(cnt))
	vs.AlrtDialog(str)
