This function retrieves font metric data for a TrueType font.


DWORD GetFontData(
  HDC hdc, 
  DWORD dwTable, 
  DWORD dwOffset, 
  LPVOID lpvBuffer, 
  DWORD cbData
);

hdc

[in] Handle to the device context.

dwTable

[in] Specifies the name of a font metric table from which the font data is to be retrieved. This parameter can identify one of the metric tables documented in the TrueType Font Files specification published by Microsoft Corporation. If this parameter is zero, the information is retrieved starting at the beginning of the font file.

dwOffset

[in] Specifies the offset from the beginning of the font metric table to the location where the function should begin retrieving information. If this parameter is zero, the information is retrieved starting at the beginning of the table specified by the dwTable parameter. If this value is greater than or equal to the size of the table, an error occurs.

lpvBuffer

[out] Pointer to a buffer that receives the font information. If this parameter is NULL, the function returns the size of the buffer required for the font data.

cbData

[in] Specifies the length, in bytes, of the information to be retrieved. If this parameter is zero, GetFontData returns the size of the data specified in the dwTable parameter.

If the function succeeds, the return value is the number of bytes returned.

If the function fails, the return value is GDI_ERROR.

To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
