    Adding fonts to S603rd, 5th edtion devices

    Hi,
    Just a quick general question regarding installation of fonts to the device.

    My application needs to use a font which is not installed by default on the device.
    If I obtain the font (I assume its just a file??) from a 3rd part vendor - is it simply a case of adding the font file to my PKG and installing to a predefined location on the device?
    Or is it slightly more complex than that?
    Regards,
    Brian

    Hi Thanks for the links.
    So it appears that it is possible once you have TCB capabilities.

    Why? Note this:
    From Symbian OS v9 the default location for system font file installation changed to \resource\fonts\ (on any drive). The phone still needs to be rebooted in order for the font file to be automatically loaded. Note that the \resource folder is protected by the TCB capability, which means that to install the file it must be bundled in a SISX file; there is no requirement for this SISX file to be signed, unless the phone itself mandates that only signed SISX files may be installed.
    Example of usage:
    Code:
    %{"MyFonts"}
    :"MyFonts"
    #{"My Fonts"},(0xXXXXXXXX),1,0,0
    
    [0x101F7961],0,0,0,{"Series60ProductID"}
    
    "C:\Symbian\9.1\S60_3rd_MR\epoc32\data\z\resource\fonts\FontName1.ttf"-"!:\resource\fonts\FontName1.ttf"
    "C:\Symbian\9.1\S60_3rd_MR\epoc32\data\z\resource\fonts\FontName2.ttf"-"!:\resource\fonts\FontName2.ttf"
