Adding new fonts to the list of available font??
Hi. I had changed the font of a label to Wide Latin 11 Plain which is by default not present in the netbeans 6.8.. i was not aware of that.... i mean from where had it come to the list of available fonts in the netbeans.. because after formatting my system last night when i opened my project in the netbeans.. i found no such font in the library..i may have been added to the library after i installed msOffice 2010.. perhaps. i don't know.:eek:
But i neeed to keep this font for my labels.. my question is how can i add new font to netbeans and also to my project.. so that whenever i export my project to a new system the same font lasts.
i download the above stated font from the following link but don't know what to do the next.

Yeah... I was right. When i installed the MSOffice 2010 this font was also installed on my system.. How i confirmed this as.. these fonts are not available on MSOffice 2003. Also I downloaded this font and installed it separately.. and it was automatically added to the list of available fonts in the netbeans..
But my problem remains the same these fonts not lasts when i export my project to some other system... i mean like we add jar files to our projects ;; isn't there any way we can add fonts to our projects??

Within the application you've to install the font. Or externally you've to ask from the user to install. My suggestion is at that point first of all you've to check that application installing machine relevant fonts are available, and if not you've to load a default font. Otherwise your application ends-up with an error.

You have to think a way to install a font in Java. That's all. For an example, in Windows, all the fonts are located in C:\WINDOWS\Fonts path. So what you can do is, simply copy the font to that location when you start the application. But if you are using your application in UNIX systems, then you have to think a way to related with relevant OS.

As I suggest you, you have to validate your font at the time of application loading. If it's not found then use default fonts. Say those initial validation test within there own structure, then deleting those fonts are not effected. But most of the application wont do that. So as far as I know NetBeans not using such fronts included in it's own folders. Delete all the fonts and give a try. :p But actually you cannot delete all the font in the system. Because your system, or the OS use some font there too, means in use all the time.

Tahoma Bold(True Type)
Microsoft Sans Serif(True Type)
Franklin Gothic Medium Italic
Franklin Gothic Medium
and those that were available in the netbeans after deleting all the fonts from the specified directory....
*Franklin Gothic Medium
Lucida Sans Typewwriter
*Microsoft Sans Serif
As you can see that the fonts that are marked with an astrick sign in the list of available fonts in the netbeans are also available in the list of fonts in c:\windows\fonts...
My questions are::
1. Why not all the fonts available in the c:\windows\fonts are shown in the netbeans??
2. From where has netbeans fetched the extra fonts that are actually not available in c:\windows\fonts??
3. If netbeans has fetched these extra fonts from its personal directory then how can i make "my application" to fetch the required fonts from its personal directory?? that are not available in c:\windows\fonts?The Quieter you become the more you are able to hear !
Have you read the Sun Swing tutorial section on Fonts? If not, it may be worth your while as it seems to have the solution to your problem: Font Tutorial

I think best solution would be handle required font for you withing your application.

Yeah, you've already got a nice explanation from Fubarable. Go through that, actually just opening the page you can find the solution there.
