With this fonts doen't work! Why? I try on Windows 10 64bit. Thx

#include <APIGdiConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPIGdi.au3>

_WinAPI_AddFontResourceEx(@ScriptDir&"\font\Android.ttf", $FR_PRIVATE,False)


GUICreate('Test ' & StringReplace(@ScriptName, '.au3', '()'), 400, 100)
GUICtrlCreateLabel('Simple Text', 10, 25, 380, 50, $SS_CENTER)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 38, -1, -1, 'Android')
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xF06000)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

I assume you double checked the path you specified is correct?
You should try and add a check to see if the font is loaded or not. Like so:

#include <APIGdiConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPIGdi.au3>

$iSuccess = _WinAPI_AddFontResourceEx(@ScriptDir&"\font\Android.ttf", $FR_PRIVATE,False)
If $iSuccess=0 Then Exit MsgBox(0, "", "Font did not load successfully")


GUICreate('Test ' & StringReplace(@ScriptName, '.au3', '()'), 400, 100)
GUICtrlCreateLabel('Simple Text', 10, 25, 380, 50, $SS_CENTER)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 38, -1, -1, 'Android')
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xF06000)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

I have no problems with the script, but i am currently testing on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, but if my answer do not help you, i can try it on my win10 machine also.

Thanks for the link to the font, helps a lot ;)

???? The file.... does not appear to be a valid font. WTF??? If I try to open a .ttf file outside the FONTS folder I receive this error. What does the firewall with fonts!

My Firewall is active, I have Administrative permissions!

Seems to be a weird one. I would suggest trying this: Unable to install fonts on Windows 10

It seems some people experience problems with fonts on removable media. Guess it's something that will be fixed at some point...

A solution for your application could be to use FileInstall to the @TempDir. I would imagine it would help, but with the firewall strangeness also being a possibility, who knows.

      Hi,
      i did some researchs how to set the font and the only way is to overwrite the subclass with WM_DRAWITEM. With WM_SETFONT i can only change the font for all tab pages, but i want to change the font for a specific page.
      So i have to set the $TCS_OWNERDRAWFIXED style to the tab control to send the WM_DRAWITEM message to the parent window. When i set this style, i can change the fonts, but sadly the tab looses the nice and simple "AutoIt style". I created two child guis, the first is the owner draw tab and the second the "Normal" tab.
      My questions is, how to create this special "AutoIt style"???

      Hi all,
      I would like to know how to check if a specific font is installed in user's system. If it is not installed, my program needs to install the font. (Don't worry about the copy right of the font. it's free) I have got some points from google which directs me into _WinAPI_AddFontResourceEx function. But help file says that this function is only for current session.  And i also got the _WinAPI_EnumFontFamilies function too. But before trying any of these, i would like to hear from the masters.

      Hi,
      I've a script, using WinAPIGdi, checking info on font files
      for some files, I get the error
      "C:\DEV\AutoIt3\Include\WinAPIGdi.au3" (2480) : ==> Variable must be of type "Object".: and then the script stops.
      Is there a way I can either "catch" that error, and let my script continue with the next file
      or improve something in the WinAPIGdi script?
       
      I've searched the forums on error handling, but couldn't immediately find something related tho errors like these which are hardstopping the script
       
      P.S. : I'm an AutoIT script newbie.....
       
      snippet from WinAPIGdi, line 2480 from the error is this one:
