The following example specifies the font for Text1 as Arial, 10 pt, standard:

Text1.Font = "-13,0,0,0,400,0,0,0,0,3,2,1,34,Arial"

The following example specifies the font for Text2 as Wingdings, 11 pt, bold italics:

Text2.Font = "-15,0,0,0,700,1,0,0,2,3,2,1,2,Wingdings"

The following example shows how you use a script to modify the font for a control and how you set the Font property correctly. This example uses a script to change the Font property for Button1 to Times New Roman, italics, 12 pt.

Define a temporary button called Button2. Click Font on the associated Properties tab and enter the font settings that you want to assign to the Button1 button. Then define the EventClick event for the Button2 button. To do this, click EventClick on the associated Events tab.

Sub Button2_EventClick(ByRef This)
  Call Inputbox("Test", "Font", This.Font)
End Sub

When you click the Button2 button, a dialog box that displays the current font settings appears. Save the user dialog box and click Test in DIAdem. Click the Button2 button. The dialog box with the font settings appears. Copy the font settings, close the dialog box, and end the test.

Assign the copied font setting in the script to the font property of the Button1 button.

Button1.Font = "-16,0,0,0,400,255,0,0,0,3,2,1,18,Times New Roman"
