Thread: Newcomer question.

  1. #1

    Default Newcomer question.

    Hi everyone,

    I am new to Clanlib and C++. However, I am familiar with C and windowing on both Sun OS and MS Window using XVT cross platform. I had been reading Clanlib for about two weeks now.

    Here is my question.

    How come there is no font dialog? Or perhaps, there is one but I could not
    find it?

    Thanks,

    Eng

    If you mean "font dialog" as a window that opens up, so that you can choose fonts. Then, no ClanLib does not contain one.

    Also, it does not have a method of finding what fonts are installed on the computer.

    If you are only targeting windows, you can use the Windows API to find the font list, and with ClanLib 0.9, you can populate a CL_Combobox with the list of fonts (hence a font dialog )

    Thanks for confirmation. I will keep that in mind. I was just spoiled with
    XVT SDK for both MS Window and X Window. I rarely used any MS or X Window SDK. But, I will have to learn them one of these days. BTW, does Clanlib support Unicode? And had you tried to run any Clanlib application with OLPC
    laptop?

    Thanks again.

    I don't know about ClanLib 0.8, someone else would have to answer that.

    ClanLib 0.9 fully supports unicode - see http://www.clanlib.org/docs/clanlib-...w/strings.html

    You can compile ClanLib 0.9 to use unicode natively (see configure.exe or Setup/configure.sln)
