True Type font creation in VB RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys
    Messing around with fonts and bitmaps and lockbits recently, a thought occurred to me. How would you create a true type font in VB?
    I don't mean construct a string using an existing font - I can do that easy enough lol
    I mean create a TT font from scratch that didn't previously exist.
    I know that TT fonts are effectively a list of curves that Windows apps render. I know we can define and draw such curves and draw paths in VB.
    So it should, imho, be quite a simplish task to make a genuine tt font from code.
