Display Different Fonts

     

In this section, you will studied how to display different fonts.

A font is a specific style of displaying characters. It describes the design, size, appearance, weight, and spacing of a character. It is the combination of  pitch and spacing. A group of fonts is defined as font-family. We are providing you an example which displays different fonts. 

The Font class represents the fonts names. The method  getLocalGraphicsEnvironment() returns the local Graphics Environment. The method getAvailableFontFamilyNames() returns an array containing the names of all font family in the GraphicsEnvironment localized for the default locale.

Following code displays the font-family:

g.drawString(differentFonts[j],p,q);

Here is the code of DisplayDifferentFonts.java

import java.awt.*;
import javax.swing.*;

public class DisplayDifferentFonts extends JComponent {
 String[] differentFonts;
 Font[] font;
 static final int IN = 15;
 public DisplayDifferentFonts() {
 
 differentFonts = GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment()
  .getAvailableFontFamilyNames();
  font = new Font[differentFonts.length];
  }
  public void paintComponent(Graphics g) {
  for (int j = 0; j < differentFonts.length; j += 1) {
  if (font[j] == null) {
  font[j] = new Font(differentFonts[j], Font.PLAIN, 16);
  }
  g.setFont(font[j]);
  int p = 15;
  int q = 15+ (IN * j);
  g.drawString(differentFonts[j],p,q);
  }
  }
  public static void main(String[] args) {
  JFrame frame = new JFrame("Different Fonts");
  frame.getContentPane().add(new JScrollPane(new DisplayDifferentFonts()));
  frame.setSize(350650);
  frame.setVisible(true);
  }
}
