Changing Font Size In Text Mode Printing
I'm printing from my application in text mode. That is by using API functions such as OpenPrinter, StartDocPrinter, WritePrinter etc. My problem is that I need a better way to set the font size. At the moment I'm Doing it by appending chr$(15), chr$(18) etc before the string to be printed.
I just want to know whether there is any other better options to specify the font size.
I'm using VB 6.0 and Windows 98

Richtextbox Text Changing Color When Font Size Changes
I have code to change the font size of the text in my Richtextbox, but when it does change the font size, it also changes the color of whatever the text currently is to black. In other words, if the text is currently red or blue, it will change the text to black.
combo1.listindex = 0
Private Sub Combo1_Click()
RichTextBox1.SelStart = 0
RichTextBox1.SelLength = Len(RichTextBox1.TextRTF)
RichTextBox1.Font.Size = Combo1.Text
Anyone have any ideas why this might be happening ?
Changing Textbox Text Font Type/Size, Bold, Italic, Underline And Color
Hi everyone, this is urgent.
I have a textbox where user can type in there. When user select (highlight) the text they can change the font, size, Bold, Italic, Underline and/or color. It should work like in MS Word.
How do I do this? I have a combo box for Fonts, a combo box for Size, and 4 command buttons for B, I, U, and Color.
Retain Font Styles When Changing Font Size
March 25, 2008
Hello, everyone. I searched for over two hours for an answer but didn't find a relevant forum example. I am using a richtextbox for my documentation. I made several simple font features such as font sizes and font styles (bold and underline) to the richtextbox. The problem I have is that after I bolded and underlined some of my document text, if I change my document to a different font size, any text that have been bolded or underlined will be undone, so I have to highlight them and bold or underline them again. Does anyone have any advice or any example code to correct it?
The following is a fragment of code in selecting for fontbold and for changing font size:
If Len(Trim(RichTextBox1.SelText)) > 0 Then' For selecting text
RichTextBox1.SelFontSize = 14
RichTextBox1.SelBold = Not (RichTextBox1.SelBold)' For selecting text for bold
RichTextBox1.Font.Size = 14 ' Font size to the whole document or richtextbox
Any advice or help will be greatly appreciated.

Changing System Font Size
I need fairly simple, Windows version independant code for a way to check and see if the user is using small fonts on their system or not, storing their current font setting if not, and then switching the system to small (96 dpi) fonts during the program, then switching back to their original font size (if needed) at the end of the program. This is necessary because of the design/layout of the program. A few users are saying the text/items at the corner of the screen are running off the edge when using large fonts.
PS Don't worry; this is not homework or anything like that. It's just sort of urgent for the type of programs I design, and I haven't been able to find answers anywhere.
Feel free if you wish to e-mail help/code to:
Thanks in advance.
Changing Windows Font Size
I need a programmatical solution for changing the size of the Windows fonts, ie normal, (96 DPI), Large (120 DPI) etc in exactly the same way as you'd get if you were to change it via Display Properties > Appearance > Font Size. Ideally there would be no reboot although I would accept this if there was no other way but what is important is that the user shouldn't need to be a local administrator to carry this out. I just can't find an adequate solution to this anywhere but it must be possible because Windows can do all this!
Any help much appreciated.

Changing Font Size In A Combo Box
I've created a combo box in excel with the macro recorder. This is the code that came back:
ActiveSheet.DropDowns.Add(1305, 52.5, 242.25, 39).Select
.ListFillRange = "$AW$4:$AW$18"
.LinkedCell = "$AX$5"
.DropDownLines = 5
.Display3DShading = False
This always results in a default font size of 8 for my list. Can anyone tell me how to modify the code above to change the font size to 14? Thanks!
Detecting The Current Font And Font Size On Various Lines In A Rich Text Box.
I have written an editor that uses a rich text box as the main text area.
The editor allows the user to select a font and font size on the toolbar.
My question is, how does one get the combo box text (for both the font and font size) to display the font or font size for the current line of the current character location?
Meaning, if I were to type in two lines, the first line being Arial 12pt, and the second line being Tahoma 14pt, how would I get the program to display the font and font size in the combo boxes?
I know about SelFont, SelStart and such, but I am not selecting any text. I am merely moving the cursor up or down and need to be able to display the font and font size for where the cursor currently is.
Anyone have any ideas?
I thank you in advance.
Detecting Font And Font Size On Various Lines In A Rich Text Box.
I have written a basic editor that uses fonts and such, however when I select a different line (while entering text into the text area of the rich text box), it doesn't display the font or font size for that particular location.
Does anyone have any ideas where I can look to solve this problem?
I thank you in advance for any information you may be able to share with me.
Font Size (and Etc.) Keep Reverting / Changing Back
I'm trying to select a bigger font size for someone vision-impaired but the fonts for the textbox keeps the original font size. Every time I run the program it has reverted back to the smaller font. When I look at the form in design mode, everything looks good and big. When I run the program, it has the smaller default font.
I even just threw a picture control up there with a picture in it, and when I run the program to test, it isn't there either! It's just gone.
What is wrong with this? Why does it look okay in design mode, but reverts back when I run the program?
Changing Font Size For Printer Object
Does anyone know how to change font size in using the Printer object? I have 2 applications, one as a DOS-based Clipper application, the other was the same application but created in VB 6.0. The reports for both applications are printed in a dot-matrix printer. When I print my reports in VB using the Printer.Print command, I get smaller fonts, therefore, more lines are printed on a page when compared to the output of my DOS application. Thanks in advance.
How To Get The Font Name And Font Size Of Header/footer Text?
In one of my procedures, I write the VBA Excel code set the text for headers and footer specifying the font name and font size (code line shown below in part).
'worksheetName has been previously defined to contain the
'name of the worksheet being handled
fullFilename = ActiveWorkbook.FullName
footerText = fullFilename & "[" & worksheetName & "]"
.LeftFooter = "&""Times New Roman,Regular""&06" & footerText
However, when I try to read the same (header/footer text) using code and assign it to a string variable, it actually includes the VBA code referring to the font name and font size as well. This is what I get (the contents of the string variable is shown below).
&"Times New Roman,Regular"&06H:MSOFFICEMY DOCUMENTSCombined National Monthly ReportTest11.xls[SBU - East]
Have a look at all the text prior to "H:..."
But when you see the header/footer content in pagesetup -> headers/footers, you only see the actual text viz :-
"H:MSOFFICEMY DOCUMENTSCombined National Monthly ReportTest11.xls[SBU - East]"
Is there a way to read this actual text only in to a string variable?

Not Printing With Proper Font And Size
I am having a problem printing in VB5. Using previous versions of VB I was able to tell the printer what font name and font size and it would consistently print as I wanted. I need to print in Courier New so I can create columnized printouts but in VB5, sometimes the printouts come out right and other times they print in a different font and size. I am using the commands:
Sometimes if I print 2 or more of the same form, the first prints properly but the others print out in a proportionally spaced font and don't look right. Any suggestions?

Printer Font Size Vs Picturebox/form/font Size
Sorry for my bad English
Why the printer object font size is different as in Picturebox or form font size property?
I copyied in a PictureBox all the properties availabe in the printer object (width, height, scalemode, scalewidth, etc, etc) to simulate a printer object, but the font size in the picturebox is always greater therefore printer.currentX & Y does not match picture1.currentX & Y
Now, how can I configure a picturebox that matches perfectly the printer proportion? I need it to make Preview routine
How can I caculate the correct scale for Picture1?
Get All Text In A RTB To Be One Font And One Size (using .TextRTF)
I'm looking for a way to make sure all the text in my RTB is one font and one size. I was thinking of removing all "f1", "f2", etc. (1 meaning font #1 from the font table) but the "fs24" (font size) could be any number and I don't really want to do a loop of all possible font sizes from 0 - 99.
I guess I could use InStr to find all "fs" and then remove that and any numbers that follow it. I guess I was looking for an easier way to accomplish this. Like maybe just removing the font from the font table? I guess I would still have the problem with "fs" though...

Calculating Text Height Based On Font Size
I'm trying to size the height of a rich text box based on how many lines of text will be in the text box. I'm trying to find some way of calculating the expected height of the text as a whole. I was trying to do this by doing a ScaleY(BaseFontSize, vbPoints, vbTwips) * #of lines. This is not working. As I get more lines of text, the box begins to get too small. I already have a functon that determines the #of lines accutately. I am resorting to this method as the richtextbox does not appear to have any type of autosizing. Thanks

Changing Font Color Cause Text Box To Flicker
If my rich text box control has more text than can currenlty be dispalyed at one time and I change the font color of all the text in the text box, the rich text box will flicker. If the total text in the rich text box does not fill up the entire rich text box dispaly area, I can change any text font color and I do not get any flicker. Is there any way to prevent this repaint event from occuring?
my code is pretty simple:
Text1.SelStart = 0
Text1.SelLength = Len(Text1.Text)
Text1.SelColor = NormalFontColor
