List all installed fonts on your machine

June 24, 2008 03:00 by ckincincy

I recently ran across this post and loved it!  I do some image creation stuff and the hardest part of my task is picking a font.  Now I can print out my installed fonts and quickly pick one out.

Now here is the guys code, but slightly edited.  As his had a few syntax errors in it. 

    StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
    foreach (FontFamily family in FontFamily.Families)
    sb.Append("<h2 style='color:blue;font-family:Arial;'>" + family.Name + "</h2>");
    sb.Append("<font face='" + family.Name + "' size='6'>");
    sb.Append("The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. 1234567890");
    lblFontList.Text = sb.ToString();
catch (Exception ex)
    lblErrorMessage.Text = ex.ToString();
