Widget API ← FontInstance < SetFont

The function is used to set the font to use for displaying text.


Arguments Edit

String - path to the font file, relative to the WoW base directory.
Number - size in points.
Optional String - any comma-delimited combination of "OUTLINE", "THICKOUTLINE" and "MONOCHROME".

Usage Edit

This method applies to multiple widgets that are derived from FontInstance; for instance, SimpleHTML, EditBox and FontString widgets all have similar methods.

FontString:SetFont("Fonts\\FRIZQT__.TTF", 11, "OUTLINE, MONOCHROME")

Notes: Edit
