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 Mac OS X Cocoa, FontCount returns the number of font families, not the number of fonts. This is closer to 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
