Embedded Fonts
« on: September 15, 2020, 11:10:13 AM »
I want to know is HAC embedded used fonts into the application?
Because I want to use a font that's not available on android by default.

I'm sorry, but HAC doesn't support embedded fonts.

It can only access fonts already installed on the device because it needs to know their name as provided by the Android OS.

For instance to set the font for a button use the command - ButtonSetFont(button_number,font_name)

By the way, fields only display properly with Mono fonts.

Please note,
HAC is quite old and was last tested fully on Android OS 4.1, seemed to work well in version 5, but Android is now up to version 11 (2020).
As the Android OS has improved, so the way that some features worked has markedly changed, so breaking older code.
