Fonts/Colors supported by Reporting System

Reporting System supports following standard PDF Fonts.

  • Courier
  • Helvetica
  • Times-Roman
  • Symbol
  • ZapfDingbats

Above fonts along with their variation (Bold and/or Italic) are automatically available for use.

In addition, TrueType font can also be used but these must be loaded first. For example, if you want to use Arial.ttf font, following PeopleCode will be required immediately after InitReport() method. The font is also embedded in the pdf document.

   If &my_report.InitReport(&InitArgs) = true then
      &Status = &my_report.LoadCustFont("C:\Windows\Fonts\Arial.ttf");
      While &SQL.Fetch(&Rec)
