    Default Font availability check

    Hi Everyone-

    I am looking for help with a routine that will check to see if a font in either .shx or .ttf is available on your system. I have a routine that creates numerous default text styles but it bombs out when it cannot find a specified font. Thanks in advance.

    Try this:
    Code:
    (defun DT:FONT_EXIST (FONTFILE / )
      (if (=(type FONTFILE) 'STR)
        (progn
          (setq FONTFILE (strcase FONTFILE 'T))  
          (if (not(vl-string-search "." FONTFILE)) (setq FONTFILE (strcat FONTFILE ".shx")))
          (cond
            ((=(vl-filename-extension FONTFILE)".SHX")	
              (if (findfile FONTFILE)  FONTFILE) 
    	)
    	((and(=(vl-filename-extension FONTFILE)".TTF")	
    	     (vl-registry-read
                   "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion"
                   "SystemRoot"
                 )
    	     (findfile(strcat
                            (vl-registry-read
                              "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion"
                              "SystemRoot"
                            )
    	                "\\FONTS\\"

    Hi Manuel, updated for Windows *.ttf searchpath
    Code:
    (defun c:ChkFontStyles ( / FontList WinPath )
      (setq FontList (list (cdr (assoc 2 (tblnext "STYLE" T )))) )
      (while (car (reverse FontList ))
        (setq FontList (append FontList (list (cdr (assoc 2 (tblnext "STYLE" nil ))))) )
      )
      (setq FontList (vl-remove nil FontList ) )
      (setq WinPath (strcat (getenv "windir" ) "\\fonts\\" ) )
      (foreach FontStyle FontList
        (princ
          (strcat
            "\n\nStyle " FontStyle " belong to fontfile " (cdr (assoc 3 (tblsearch "STYLE" FontStyle )))
            "\nlocated in "
            (cond
              ((= (wcmatch (cdr (assoc 3 (tblsearch "STYLE" FontStyle ))) "*.*" ) nil )
                (findfile (strcat (cdr (assoc 3 (tblsearch "STYLE" FontStyle ))) ".shx" )) )
              ((= (type (findfile (strcat WinPath (cdr (assoc 3 (tblsearch "STYLE" FontStyle ))) ))) 'STR )
                (findfile (strcat WinPath (cdr (assoc 3 (tblsearch "STYLE" FontStyle ))) )) )
              ((= (type (findfile (cdr (assoc 3 (tblsearch "STYLE" FontStyle ))))) 'STR )
                (findfile (cdr (assoc 3 (tblsearch "STYLE" FontStyle )))) )
              (t "missplaced AutoCADs or missplaced Windows font searchpath,\nfile not found." )
            )
          )
        )
      )
      (textscr)
      (princ "\n\nHappy Computing !\n\nkennet" )
      (princ)
    )

    Hi Everyone-

    Thanks for the replies. I think both of these routines will do the job. Many many thanks.
