REALbasic font handling - System to Vista font and such
Date: 19.04.06 00:47 (Tue, 18 Apr 2006 23:47:42 +0000)
From: Björn Eiríksson <b
I was trying to hook into the REALbasic font handling by:

1. Create a Picture Object 1x1 pixel,
2. Set the font
3. Get the HDC from the Picture Object Graphics
4. Get the HFONT from the HDC
5. Get the LOGFONT from the FONT

Now I create my own font from the FONT.

The purpose of it was supposed to be able to be consistent with
REALbasic font size, and to be able to map System font correctly
depending on if its Windows XP, Vista or something else.

The only problem is that my logic above does not work.

So my question is, does REALbasic not set the font on the HDC until
it draws a text ? If so then does it take it it back right after
drawing a text ?
