Favorite Font?

9 posts in this topic

K, I'm basically making a program.

But I'm trying to get a good font for it.

So what are your favorite font(s)?

Tahoma, then Courier New for same size font.

If you want full compatibility, you can't go wrong with Times new Roman and Courier New.

I'm so used to using the default.

Lol, just so many options.

It is help, helping me choose a font for a program I'm making!

And I prefer the suggestions you guys give me rather than the casual ones I can find on Google.

I suppose your choice of font would depend upon what you're doing with the text you're displaying. If you want a monospaced font for something like displaying time or a timer, or a font that looks good small for a tool tip, or a font that looks good large for a splash screen, or just a general purpose font for labels. Focus on what you want to display, and play around with fonts that look good doing it.

Also, look at the list of standard Windows fonts in the Help file appendix to make sure it's going to be available on the target OS where your program is going to run.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Verdana is a nice choice indeed, Tahoma is good too, Courier New is good if you want a "stretched" round font.

You should stick to common fonts (fonts you can find on a normal Win installation) if there are other people to use your app.


SNMP_UDF ... for SNMPv1 and v2c so far, GetBulk and a new example script

wannabe "Unbeatable" Tic-Tac-Toe

Paper-Scissor-Rock ... try to beat it anyway :)
