j2me font size

Discussion in 'Java' started by Marcin Sulecki, Jun 30, 2004.

  1. Hello!
    I develop middlet on Nokia 6610. I can set font size to
    SIZE_SMALL/SIZE_MEDIUM / SIZE_LARGE. I would like to set font size to
    another size, example 8px. How I can do it?

    Can't do it. You get what the platform gives you.

    The reason is on small devices you don't have room for font scaling
    software or a plump built-in font collection. Further the screen
    resolution is not high enough to support it. So you get just 3 raster
    fonts. If they did put in what you wanted, it would just collapse
    down to one of the three built-in fonts anyway.
