Overview

The Font class represents fonts, which are used to render text on screen. Do not extend this class. It should be considered final.

publicDEFAULTFont

The default font for this platform.

The default font for this platform. This is used whenever a font is not specifically set on a Text node.

 

Variable Summary

public-initautoKernBooleantrue

Indicates that automatic kerning (as described in the font) should be used.

Indicates that automatic kerning (as described in the font) should be used. Kerning is used to adjust the distance between certain glyph sequences for a more pleasing visual result. This is on by default.

true

public-initemboldenBooleanfalse

Emboldens the font algorithmically.

Emboldens the font algorithmically. Any font, regardless of its weight, will be made heavier if embolden is true. For example, a "regular" weighted font would become "bold", and a "bold" weighted font would become "extra bold". This variable affects the way the font is rendered, but does not affect the name, family, or style.

false

public-readfamilyString

The family of this font.

The family of this font. This is a readonly property initialized when the font is created.

public-initletterSpacingNumber0

Also known as tracking, letterSpacing is the amount of extra space to insert between letters or glyphs when rendering text.

Also known as tracking, letterSpacing is the amount of extra space to insert between letters or glyphs when rendering text. Increasing this value will cause the letters to be rendered further apart, while decreasing this value will cause the letters to run into each other. The default value of "0" indicates that no additional letter spacing should be used. Positive values spread the letters apart while negative values bring them closer together.

0

public-initligaturesBooleantrue

Describes whether any font ligatures should be used.

Describes whether any font ligatures should be used. A ligature is a special glyph used to represent what are normally multiple glyphs, and is typically used to make a font look better.

true

public-initnameStringempty string

The full font name.

The full font name. This name includes both the family name and the style variant within that family. For example, for a plain Arial font this would be "Arial" or "Arial Regular" and for a bolded Arial font this would be "Arial Bold". The precise name to use when loading a font is defined within each font file as the full font name. For example, "Proxima Nova ExtraCondensed Bold Italic" would refer to a specific Proxima Nova font.

There is a single unified way to load both embedded and device fonts. Simply create the font by specifying the full name of the font you want to load. This class will first search for an embedded font by this name. If not found, then it will check a list of known fonts shipped with JavaFX. If the font is still not found, then system fonts will be checked. If the specific font still cannot be located, then a fallback font will be used. The "name" will be updated to reflect the actual name of the font being used. A load failure condition can be discovered by checking the name of the Font with the name you tried to load.

All other properties (such as size, letterSpacing, ligatures, etc) are used by the font to produce the correct set of glyphs and metrics for rendering text with this font, bu are not used for selecting the actual font to use.

Note that if you wish to locate a font by font family and style then you can use one of the font script functions defined in this script.

public-initobliqueBooleanfalse

Obliques the font algorithmically.

Obliques the font algorithmically. Any font, regardless of its posture, will be made more oblique if this variable is true. For example, a "regular" postured font will become "oblique" and an already italic or obliqued font will become even more oblique. This variable affects the way the font is rendered, but does not affect the name, family, or style.

false

public-initpositionFontPositionnull

Indicates whether this font is regular, superscript, or subscript.

Indicates whether this font is regular, superscript, or subscript. A null value is interpreted as regular.

public-initsizeNumber12

12

public-readstyleString

The style within the font family that this font belongs to.

The style within the font family that this font belongs to. This is a readonly property initialized when the font is created. family + style = name.
