Only true type fonts are supported. This is not a True type font


I am trying to create barcodes within my VB.NET application.

I have followed all your instructions and tutorial video.




The following problems occur:

When I execute the code, only the code, it does not display the barcode ( I have used Code 39 in this instance).

Then, if I try to manually (in the VB.NET project) change the font of the label/text box to the font 'IDAutomationSC39S' (demo font) for example, it says "Only true type fonts are supported. This is not a True type font" - even though I successfully installed the true type fonts.

Can you please help?

Operating System: Windows

Application: Visual Studio

Solution 1:

After selecting the font in the properties window of the VS.NET IDE, the error message "Only TrueType fonts are supported and this is not a TrueType font" will be reported. Click OK, and then close VS.NET. Re-open VS.NET, followed by the project; select the font in the properties window, the error will no longer be generated.
Solution 2:

In the Visual Studio.NET application, reference and apply the fonts through the code window of the application. The following example assigns the evaluation version of IDAutomation's Code 39 Font with the human readable text displayed on a label in a form during the Form_Load event. For other barcode types such as Code 128, Interleaved 2 of 5, and Intelligent Mail, use the .NET Assembly Font Encoder with the barcode font.

VB.NET:

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object,
ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

Label1.Font = New Font("IDAutomationSHC39S", 12, FontStyle.Regular)


End Sub


C#:

private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs
e)

{

label1.Font = new Font("IDAutomationSHC39S", 12, FontStyle.Regular);


}
