Ability to create SWT Font / FontData objects from files or InputStreams [message #467276] Fri, 27 January 2006 14:53 Go to next message

I think, it (sometimes) would be great to be able to load (TrueType) fonts from a jar file or an InputStream - like AWT with its Font API
<b><code>public static Font createFont(int fontFormat, InputStream fontStream)</code></b>

Tell me your opinion.

There's a feature request open for SWT to accomplish this:

Of course..

BUT: Mr. Northover's statement: "Normally, SWT stays out of the font loading business. Instead, it's up to the application to use system tools to install the font the same way that any font would be installed for the operating system."

SO: if this topic will be discussed (and commonly consented), the SWT team maybe would reconsider

The place to hold that discussion would be on the bug report, so that
the discussion is recorded along with the request, and to ensure that
the proper SWT developers are aware of what's going on (rather than
hoping that they're reading this newsgroup thread).
