Font Constructor (String, Single)
Initializes a new Font using a specified size.
Assembly: System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)
emSize is less than or equal to 0, evaluates to infinity or is not a valid number.
The resulting font has its Style property set to FontStyle.Regular and its Unit property set to GraphicsUnit.Point. Windows Forms applications support TrueType fonts and have limited support for OpenType fonts. If the familyName parameter specifies a font that is not installed on the machine running the application or is not supported, Microsoft Sans Serif will be substituted.
The following code example demonstrates how to use the Font constructor. This example is designed to be used with a Windows Form and requires a PaintEventArgs e, which is a parameter of the Paint event.
