    FONTS IN J2ME

    Hello, my question is:
    Can i change the tipical fonts in j2me(Series 60)???
    Anybody knows if exists a optional package that implements new fonts??

    There is a problem that j2me only has few family fonts.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    You can use only the fonts available in j2me.
    You can't use any customised fonts in j2me.


    This may be possible in symbian c++ not sure

    Re: FONTS IN J2ME

    If you are using a canvas based app; You can do the necessary graphics for your own customised fonts and save that as an image file along with your other graphics images; and then you could use those customised fonts where ever you want in the app!

    For eg: first of all you have to create a PNG image strip with all the charectors say '1234..... ABCD....abcd...' and so on in your desired style.

    You can use setClip() to set the clipping position on the strip (PNG image with fonts) and then draw the image using drawImage();

    Hope this helps.

    Also here is a similar discussion http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...highlight=font

    I do remember this link some one have posted earlier regarding a font changer in Symbian phones.(But not tried it myself yet!)

    Hi pablovara,
    Thats possible indeed in J2ME,there is no doubt about this..
    As bala has already explained the same.
    You can have the png images for the STYLE,SIZE you wana have..
    Then you can read the same and you can use..
    I hope the links provided by bala are more than sufficient,still if you have any probs then write here,
    Thanks,
    Thanks with Regards,
