TextBox.FontName property (Access)
You can use the FontName property to specify the font for text in the following situations:
- When displaying or printing controls on forms and reports.
- When using the Print method on a report.
expression A variable that represents a TextBox object.
The FontName property setting is the name of the font that the text is displayed in.
You can set the default for this property by using a control's default control style or the DefaultControl property in Visual Basic.
For reports, you can set this property only in an event procedure or in a macro specified by the OnPrint event property setting.
Font availability depends on your system and printer. If you select a font that your system can't display or that isn't installed, Windows substitutes a similar font.
The following example uses the Print method to display text on a report named Report1. It uses the TextWidth and TextHeight methods to center the text vertically and horizontally.
Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, _ FormatCount As Integer) Dim rpt as Report Dim strMessage As String Dim intHorSize As Integer, intVerSize As Integer Set rpt = Me strMessage = "DisplayMessage" With rpt 'Set scale to pixels, and set FontName and 'FontSize properties. .ScaleMode = 3 .FontName = "Courier" .FontSize = 24 End With ' Horizontal width. intHorSize = Rpt.TextWidth(strMessage) ' Vertical height. intVerSize = Rpt.TextHeight(strMessage) ' Calculate location of text to be displayed. Rpt.CurrentX = (Rpt.ScaleWidth/2) - (intHorSize/2) Rpt.CurrentY = (Rpt.ScaleHeight/2) - (intVerSize/2) ' Print text on Report object. Rpt.Print strMessage End Sub
