I'm trying to put together an app that can be used on a usb stick, so it needs to be portable in every way. Unfortunately, i've just realized that i'm using a font that not every pc has installed, so i searched for a way to get around this and discovered that i could add a font file to my project and embed the file from the properties menu. Then i used some code to reference the font from the current directory. All works well.
The problem is that i have to assign the font to each control on every form separately which is going to be not only tedious but prone to errors....by me missing a control here and there probably!
I need to try and make this new font my default font. The font only installs during runtime as it's not installed on the pc, but that is soon remedied for design purposes. I need everything to use this same embedded font by default at runtime, and i'm not sure how to do it!
I've tried assigning the font to each actual form, but that didn't work. I also tried to find a way to use the settings option (settings tab in the project properties) but that just gives you the usual font dialog box to pick system fonts.
Anyone know how i could do this?
