Raster Fonts (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)

1/6/2010

This Catalog item adds support for raster fonts to your OS design. A raster font is a font based on tiny bitmaps, each representing a single character and size. Because the bitmaps for each glyph in a raster font are designed for a specific resolution on a particular device, raster fonts are generally considered device-dependent.

For more information, see Working with TrueType and Raster Fonts.

The following table shows the Sysgen variables that enable raster font support.
