Namespace:  System.Drawing

public sealed class FontFamily : MarshalByRefObject, 
	IDisposable

The following code example shows all the font families in the Families property of the FontFamily class. This example is designed to be used with a Windows Form. To run this example, add a ListBox named listBox1 to a form and call the PopulateListBoxWithFonts method from the form's constructor.

private void PopulateListBoxWithFonts()
{
    listBox1.Width = 200;
    listBox1.Location = new Point(40, 120);
    foreach ( FontFamily oneFontFamily in FontFamily.Families )
    {
        listBox1.Items.Add(oneFontFamily.Name);
    }
}
