PrintTicket.DeviceFontSubstitution Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the printer substitutes device-based fonts for computer-based fonts on the print job.

Namespace:  System.Printing
Assembly:  ReachFramework (in ReachFramework.dll)

public Nullable<DeviceFontSubstitution> DeviceFontSubstitution { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Nullable<DeviceFontSubstitution>
A DeviceFontSubstitution value indicating whether the device substitutes device-based fonts for computer-based fonts for the current print job.


Calling code has attempted to set the property to a value that is not in the DeviceFontSubstitution enumeration.

A null value for this property means that this feature setting is not specified. Also, when the value is null, the XML versions of the PrintTicket (see SaveTo and GetXmlStream) will not contain any markup for this feature.

This property corresponds to the Print Schema's PageDeviceFontSubstitution keyword.

You can test for the options that the printer supports by using the DeviceFontSubstitutionCapability property.
