Type   Default Value   Read Only   Description
String "ANSI" No The charset to be used when returning fonts



The charset to be used when detemining the fonts collection.

You are only likely to need to change the charset if you are drawing symbols or text from complex scripts such as Japanese, Korean and Arabic.

If you know the ID of your character set you can use that number. Alternatively you can use any of the following shortcuts:

  • ANSI
  • Default
  • Symbol
  • Russian
  • GB2312
  • Greek
  • Turkish
  • Baltic
  • Hebrew
  • Arabic
  • ShiftJIS
  • Hangeul
  • Hangul
  • ChineseBIG5
  • Johab
  • Vietnamese
  • Thai
  • EastEurope
  • Mac
