Method XbpFont():getIFont() Foundation

Return font as an IFont automation object.

:getIFont() --> oIFont

This method returns the font as an IFont COM object.


COM/ActiveX components usually manage fonts using COM objects. To assign a font to a property of a COM/ActiveX object, an Xbase++ application often needs to specify the font as an IFont object. The method :getIFont() creates an AutomationObject of class IFont and initializes the object with the font data maintained by the XbpFont instance. The object returned can then be assigned to the COM/ActiveX property.
