XpsFont Class

XpsFont Class


Represents a font in an XpsDocument.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Xps.Packaging
Assembly:  ReachFramework (in ReachFramework.dll)

public class XpsFont : XpsResource


Gets a value that indicates whether the font is obfuscated.


Gets or sets a value that indicates whether text that uses this font can be modified.


Gets or sets the uniform resource identifier (URI) of the part.(Inherited from XpsPartBase.)


Commits all changes and flushes the resource to the document package.(Inherited from XpsResource.)


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


When overridden in a derived class, returns the I/O stream for reading or writing the resource. (Inherited from XpsResource.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodSystem_CAPS_staticObfuscateFontData(Byte[], Guid)

Obfuscates the font typeface data.


Returns the URI of the resource that is relative to a specified absolute URI.(Inherited from XpsResource.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


This member supports the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. (Inherited from XpsResource.)

The XpsFont class has no public constructor.

Use the AddFont method to add a font and obtain a reference to it in a new document.

Use the GetFont method to obtain a font reference in an existing document.

Based on settings of XpsSerializationManager and XpsPackagingPolicy, such as FontSubsetterCommitPolicies and PackageInterleavingOrder, the flush operation of the Commit method of the XpsFont class may be delayed until the whole XpsDocument is closed.

The following example shows how to add fonts to an XpsDocument.

// -------------------------- AddPageResources ----------------------------
private Dictionary<string, List<XpsResource>>
        AddPageResources(IXpsFixedPageWriter fixedPageWriter)
    // Collection of all resources for this page.
    //   Key: "XpsImage", "XpsFont"
    //   Value: List of XpsImage or XpsFont
    Dictionary<string, List<XpsResource>> resources =
        new Dictionary<string, List<XpsResource>>();

    // Collections of images and fonts used in the current page.
    List<XpsResource> xpsImages = new List<XpsResource>();
    List<XpsResource> xpsFonts  = new List<XpsResource>();

        XpsImage xpsImage;
        XpsFont  xpsFont;

        // Add, Write, and Commit image1 to the current page.
        xpsImage = fixedPageWriter.AddImage(XpsImageType.JpegImageType);
        WriteToStream(xpsImage.GetStream(), image1);
        xpsImages.Add(xpsImage);    // Add image1 as a required resource.

        // Add, Write, and Commit font 1 to the current page.
        xpsFont = fixedPageWriter.AddFont();
            xpsFont.Uri.ToString(), xpsFont.GetStream(), font1);
        xpsFonts.Add(xpsFont);      // Add font1 as a required resource.

        // Add, Write, and Commit image2 to the current page.
        xpsImage = fixedPageWriter.AddImage(XpsImageType.TiffImageType);
        WriteToStream(xpsImage.GetStream(), image2);
        xpsImages.Add(xpsImage);    // Add image2 as a required resource.

        // Add, Write, and Commit font2 to the current page.
        xpsFont = fixedPageWriter.AddFont(false);
        WriteToStream(xpsFont.GetStream(), font2);
        xpsFonts.Add(xpsFont);      // Add font2 as a required resource.

        // Return the image and font resources in a combined collection.
        resources.Add("XpsImage", xpsImages);
        resources.Add("XpsFont", xpsFonts);
        return resources;
    catch (XpsPackagingException xpsException)
        throw xpsException;
}// end:AddPageResources()
