xx Setting button font to use Wingdings
« Thread started on: Nov 22nd, 2017, 04:34am »

Hi,

I want to use empty & filled up arrows/triangles on a button and tried changing the font with "!font Wingdings_3" but it isn't recognized. The button shows the equivalent alphabetical character of "r" or "p".

Can this be set via API or would it be easier using bmpbutton?

As you said, easier to use BMPBUTTONs. Here is the API for the wingdings anyway: http://www.alycesrestaurant.com/wingding.htm

Hi,

Yes, went the bmpbutton route. Made 3: arrow outline, arrow filled and greyed out for when it's disabled.
