Member variable XbpFont():vector Foundation

Determines whether the font is a vector font.

Attribute: EXPORTED
Data type: Logical (.F.)

The instance variable :vector contains the value .T. (true) after font creation when the font selected is a vector font. If the instance variable contains the value .F. (false), the font is a bitmap font If :vector contains the value .T. (true) when :create() if executed, the font object attempts to select a scaleable font that most closely matches the font object's properties.

The characters of a bitmap font are raster images. Characters of a vector font are created using lines and arcs. This means that their outline is displayed and filled with a color (if appropriate) using graphic functions. Characters of a vector font can be rotated and scaled to any size. This is not possible using bitmap fonts.
