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 name of the font family.

  • Draws the name of the font family to the screen as text.

public:
   void GetName_Example( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      // Create a FontFamily object.
      FontFamily^ myFontFamily = gcnew FontFamily( "Arial" );

      // Get the name of myFontFamily.
      String^ familyName = myFontFamily->GetName( 0 );

      // Draw the name of the myFontFamily to the screen as a string.
      e->Graphics->DrawString( String::Format( "The family name is {0}", familyName ),
            gcnew System::Drawing::Font( myFontFamily,16 ), Brushes::Black, PointF(0,0) );
   }
public void GetName_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Create a FontFamily object.
    FontFamily myFontFamily = new FontFamily("Arial");
             
    // Get the name of myFontFamily.
    string familyName = myFontFamily.GetName(0);
             
    // Draw the name of the myFontFamily to the screen as a string.
    e.Graphics.DrawString(
        "The family name is " + familyName,
        new Font(myFontFamily, 16),
        Brushes.Black,
        new PointF(0, 0));
}
Public Sub GetName_Example(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create a FontFamily object.
    Dim myFontFamily As New FontFamily("Arial")

    ' Get the name of myFontFamily.
    Dim familyName As String = myFontFamily.GetName(0)

    ' Draw the name of the myFontFamily to the screen as a string.
    e.Graphics.DrawString("The family name is " & familyName, _
    New Font(myFontFamily, 16), Brushes.Black, New PointF(0, 0))
End Sub
