I thought I had a good idea while working on a WPF/E presentation I'm doing February 3, 2007 at the Phoenix INETA meeting
. I won't give away what I'm doing, but I wanted to use a wingding font in a TextBlock.
It didn't work.
I posed the question in the WPF/E Google Group
started by Michael Schwarz. Michael pointed out to me that it may not be possible at this point in time. I had already asked in the MSDN forum, and got a response there a bit later.
It turns out there are a LOT of fonts available to us in the December CTP, and even one ding font.
The font list according to Mark Rideout, a Microsoft Program Manager is:Macintosh Fonts
“Arial” (font suitcase)
“Arial Black” (font suitcase)
“Comic Sans MS” (font suitcase)
“Courier New” (font suitcase)
“Georgia” (font suitcase)
“Times New Roman” (font suitcase)
“Trebuchet MS” (font suitcase)
“Verdana” (font suitcase)
“Webdings” (font suitcase))
“Arial” (font suitcase)Windows Fonts (font “family” highlighted for each group of fonts)
ariblk.ttf Arial\Arial Black
comicbd.ttf Comic Sans
l_10646.ttf Lucida Sans Unicode
timesi.ttf Times New Roman
It's great that Webdings is on the list and the list is actually much larger than I expected when I had the problem.
