GuiCreateFont

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This function creates a GUI font element that can be used in guiSetFont. Successful font creation is not guaranteed, and may fail due to hardware or memory limitations.

To see if creation is likely to fail, use dxGetStatus. (When VideoMemoryFreeForMTA is zero, failure is guaranteed.)

It is highly recommended that dxSetTestMode is used when writing and testing scripts using guiCreateFont .

Syntax

element guiCreateFont ( string filepath[, int size=9 ] )

Required Arguments

  • filepath: the name of the file containing the font

Optional Arguments

  • size: size of the font

Returns

Returns a GUI font element if successful, false if invalid arguments were passed to the function, or there is insufficient resources available.

You should always check to see if this function has returned false.

Example

-- Display a gui label
local myLabel = guiCreateLabel( 100, 300, 400, 50, "GUI label", false )

-- Use 'toggle' command to switch custom font on and off
addCommandHandler( "toggle",
    function()
        if not myFont then
            myFont = guiCreateFont( "segoeui.ttf", 20 )  -- Create GUI custom font
            guiSetFont( myLabel, myFont )                -- Apply font to a widget
        else        
            destroyElement( myFont )                     -- Destroy custom font
            myFont = nil
        end
    end
)
