Examples

The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code performs the following actions:

  • Creates a FontFamily.

  • Gets the cell descent for that font family.

  • Draws the value of the cell descent to the screen as text.

public:
   void GetCellDescent_Example( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      // Create a FontFamily object.
      FontFamily^ descentFontFamily = gcnew FontFamily( "arial" );

      // Get the cell descent of the font family in design units.
      int cellDescent = descentFontFamily->GetCellDescent( FontStyle::Regular );

      // Draw the result as a string to the screen.
      e->Graphics->DrawString( String::Format( "descentFontFamily.GetCellDescent() returns {0}.", cellDescent ),
            gcnew System::Drawing::Font( descentFontFamily,16 ), Brushes::Black, PointF(0,0) );
   }
public void GetCellDescent_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Create a FontFamily object.
    FontFamily descentFontFamily = new FontFamily("arial");
             
    // Get the cell descent of the font family in design units.
    int cellDescent = descentFontFamily.GetCellDescent(FontStyle.Regular);
             
    // Draw the result as a string to the screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawString(
        "descentFontFamily.GetCellDescent() returns " + cellDescent.ToString() + ".",
        new Font(descentFontFamily, 16),
        Brushes.Black,
        new PointF(0, 0));
}
Public Sub GetCellDescent_Example(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create a FontFamily object.
    Dim descentFontFamily As New FontFamily("arial")

    ' Get the cell descent of the font family in design units.
    Dim cellDescent As Integer = _
    descentFontFamily.GetCellDescent(FontStyle.Regular)

    ' Draw the result as a string to the screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawString("descentFontFamily.GetCellDescent() returns " _
    & cellDescent.ToString() & ".", New Font(descentFontFamily, 16), _
    Brushes.Black, New PointF(0, 0))
End Sub
