    Changing the default fonts for 7650

    Hi all,

    I've post this question for long time but still no reply. If there is anyone with this knowledge, pls give me some hints. My question is:

    Is there any way to change the default font (the font used in the built-in SMS program, and other built-in programs) to my own font which is in .gdr format already? Is there any Global Object/function I can use to "point" the default font to my own font? (CCoeEnv::Static() seems not ok...)

    I also tried to modify the UID of my font to the UID of the system font (0x10005979) and put it in C:\system\fonts, but the emulator even cannot start up.

    Is there any workable method?

    Thank you!!

    Regards,

    Edmund

    Unfortunately the system font is hardcoded and cannot be changed. However you can create your own font for your application.

    convert from ttf to gdr

    hi murali,

    u can create ur own symbian specific fonts (.gdr) from ttf using the convert utility

    check out this site

    http://geocities.com/zavorine/epoc/fontstore.htm

    "font utilities" on this site is used to convert from ttf to gdr so its quite useful. U can have ur own fonts in the system. I have used it myself to add new fonts to my 9200 comm system.

    regards
