Indicates whether the current font is a double-byte character set (DBCS) font.
INTEGER *4 FUNCTION GETFONT
The getfonttype subroutine indicates whether the currently bound font is a single-byte or double-byte font.
The behavior of the charstr subroutine depends on the font type of the currently loaded font. Use the getfonttype subroutine to determine whether to pass single-byte or double-byte character strings to the charstr subroutine.
Note: Most European fonts, including all ISO8859 code sets, are single-byte fonts. Most Asian font sets, including the JIS (Japanese Kanji) fonts, are double-byte fonts.
|FT_SBCS||Indicates that the current font is a single-byte font.|
