List of Installed Fonts
This download consists of a VisualNEO Win Function (developed using VBScript commands) and a sample Publication that demonstrates the deployment of this Function to load a ListBox with a list of Fonts installed on the User’s machine.
After storing the gkvGetFonts file in the Functions folder, you can Call this Function from any pub with a command like this …
Call "gkvGetFonts" "TrueType" "[myFontList]"
Upon execution of the above command, variable [myFontList] will contain the Registry Entries associated with all installed Fonts. These entries are made up of the Font Name and the Font Type like so …
Arial Bold (TrueType)”
The entries are separated by the Carriage Return code [#13] … so if the List Items: property of a ListBox is set to the variable [myFontList] … the entries will be displayed within the ListBox.
Note that if you want to use the ListBox as a tool for the user to select a Font Name … but not the Font Type … just follow the Call command with …
StrReplace "[myFontList]" " (TrueType)" "" "[myFontList]" ""
