This function is used to get the current font that is used to draw text in DGS elements.


string/element dgsGetFont ( element dgsElement )

DGS OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: DGSElement:getFont(...)
Variable: .font
Counterpart: dgsSetFont

Required Arguments

  • dgsElement: The DGS element you wish to get the font of.


  • string A string containing the name of the element's current font, or false if the dgs element passed to the function is invalid.
  • element The custom font that is used, or nil otherwise


This example sets and gets the font of a pre-made dgs element and outputs it to chat box.

DGS = exports.dgs
-- We create a dummy dgs label to get text of
local dummyGUIElement = DGS:dgsCreateLabel ( 0.45, 0.48, 0.10, 0.04, "Hello world", true )
DGS:dgsSetFont ( dummyGUIElement, "clear" )
-- Output the font of the label to chat box
outputChatBox ( "Font used in the GUI label: " .. DGS:dgsGetFont( dummyGuiElement ) )
