Hi,

I have a custom font that I would like to set default instead of manually setting the font

it should be set like this configuration:
http://i834.photobucket.com/albums/zz270/fortuda/font.png

However is there a way to use a font object instead of installing the font?
And where to set the font object in xtext to be used as default?

Regards,
Phil

Hi,

Installing / delivering the custom font is not Xtext Specific. So you may find a better answer in an RCP Forum or in the Eclipse Help
Never the less the For the Xtext Editor uses can be configured through the IHighlightingConfiguration

I know that default eclipse plugin development uses an extension for themes and set font definition with xml,
it should be programmatically to avoid the requirement to install the font.

I found that xtext has a LanguageRootPreferencePage, could I do anything with it?

Hi,

am not sure what you are talking about. for the syntax coloring there is SyntaxColoringPreferencePage
but as i said this is the step after the IHighlightingConfiguration id called

P.S: maybe org.eclipse.xtext.ui.editor.syntaxcoloring.PreferenceStoreAccessor.populateTextStyle(String, TextStyle, TextStyle)
is another hook too but it is hard to extend it nicely

Any font available in the systems font catalog should be possible to
use. (It is that way on my Mac at least, I get to pick from all
available fonts using the native font picker).

The rest is just a matter of configuring the highlighting (to use the
font you want for plain text, and then use that to defined the other
styles).

If you want to change one of the eclipse default themes, you need to
figure out where to preferences are stored and then set them. (This can
be done programatically - but you probably want to let the user have
control over this as it affects all editors for all environments that
base their styles on the default style.

Does that answer your question?

Hi Henrik the problem is solved by using highlightconfiguration (as Christian also pointed out to me).
Anyway thank you for your full explanations! The support is amazing here !

Phil
