Remarks

Use this method to add one or more user fonts to the LEADTOOLS tookit. The font data can contain a single or many face types, and this method can be called multiple times to add several fonts. LEADTOOLS supports both TrueType (.ttf) and OpenType (.otf) font formats.

This method allows a process using a LEADTOOLS toolkit to use fonts without installing them on the operating system. Refer to LEADTOOLS Draw Engine and Multi-Platform Considerations for more information.

Note that fonts are added to the current draw engine. Therefore, an application must:

Use AddUserFont(string) to add a font stored in a disk file and AddUserFont(byte[],int,int) to add a font file stored in memory.

Use ClearUserFonts to delete all user fonts added to the LEADTOOLS tookit.
