This method adds a Type1 font from a file and returns the font name.

Syntax

BSTR AddType1FontFromFile (
BSTR afmFontFile,
BSTR pfbFontFile,
TxFontCharset charset
)
Parameters
afmFontFile
Path to a Type1 Adobe Font Metrics file

pfbFontFile
Path to a file with binary data for a Type1 font

charset
Character set of loading font

Return value
The return value is the loaded font name. If the font can't be added (when you try to add a commercial font, for example), it returns an empty string.

Remarks

If you don't know the font's type, use AddTTFFontFromFile2instead. This method will determine the font's type and try to load it.

The return value is the name of the font added and can be used in PDFPAGE_SetActiveFont.

Equivalents in new interface: IPDFDocument4::AddFont, IPDFDocument4::AddFontFromFile, IPDFDocument4::AddBuiltInFont.
