Font picker using _ChooseFont

17 posts in this topic

When selecting a font, _ChooseFont can reuse the font Name and Size, but is there a way to reuse the other parameters like style and effects ?

I would like to select a new font starting with the current font being used with all the current attibutes.

Modified example from help file.

#include <Misc.au3>

Local $a_font

$a_font = _ChooseFont ("Arial",10)
If (@error) Then
   MsgBox(0, "", "Error _ChooseFont: " & @error)
Else
   MsgBox(0, "", "Font Name: " & $a_font[2] & @LF & "Size: " & $a_font[3] & @LF & "Weight: " & $a_font[4] & @LF & "COLORREF rgbColors: " & $a_font[5] & @LF & "Hex BGR Color: " & $a_font[6] & @LF & "Hex RGB Color: " & $a_font[7])
EndIf

$a_font = _ChooseFont ($a_font[2], $a_font[3])
If (@error) Then
   MsgBox(0, "", "Error _ChooseFont: " & @error)
Else
   MsgBox(0, "", "Font Name: " & $a_font[2] & @LF & "Size: " & $a_font[3] & @LF & "Weight: " & $a_font[4] & @LF & "COLORREF rgbColors: " & $a_font[5] & @LF & "Hex BGR Color: " & $a_font[6] & @LF & "Hex RGB Color: " & $a_font[7])
EndIf

Agreement is not necessary - thinking for one's self is!

Suggest looking at the function in the Misc.au3, I left the structure information commented in there.

If you want to make a customized or re-vamp for a better one with optional params that's ok with me.

I also noticed that, with the code above, it doesn't return the right Size when it goes back the second time.

Ok, I'll give it a go ... maybe I'll find the font Size thing too.

to help you out with the size, 2 lines are the problem

Local $lfHeight = Round(($i_size * $ret[2]) / 72, 0)
oÝ÷ Ù©Ýjëh×6
    DllStructSetData($lf, 1, $lfHeight + 1)

I was immediately drawn to those 2 lines, but I don't have a clue about the dll stuff ... but I'm trying. :">

At the time I wrote that I didn't either.

I'm thinking a diff. dll call might be better, maybe textmextrics instead of devicecaps

Works like a charm, Thanks.

Would it be asking to much to help me figure out the other stuff ? I really have no clue how to modify <misc.au3> for the style, effects and color.

I'll take a look at it when I get a chance.

Very nice thank you .... but BOLD is not returning correctly, it sets back to normal.

Now it goes back to regular regardless if it's Italic, Bold or Bold Italic. I've been looking at differences hoping I could figure it out, but haven't so far.

Nothing to figure out, see my above examples, especially the 3rd one.
