Method

Used to determine the number of fonts installed on the user’s computer.


Syntax

result=FontCount

Part Type Name
result Integer The number of fonts installed.

Notes

FontCount is useful when you need to build a list of available fonts or need to determine if a specific font is installed.

Under macOS, FontCount returns the number of font families, not the number of fonts. This is closer to the older Carbon behavior, but will not return identical results.

Examples

This example populates a top-level menu called FontMenu with the names of the installed fonts:

For i As Integer = 0 To FontCount-1
FontMenu.Append(New MenuItem(Font(i)))
Next
