public FontFallbackSettings FallbackSettings { get; }

Property Value

Type: FontFallbackSettings


Shows how to distribute fallback fonts across unicode character code ranges.
Document doc = new Document();

// Create a FontSettings object for our document and get its FallbackSettings attribute
FontSettings fontSettings = new FontSettings();
doc.FontSettings = fontSettings;
FontFallbackSettings fontFallbackSettings = fontSettings.FallbackSettings;

// Set our fonts to be sourced exclusively from the "MyFonts" folder
FolderFontSource folderFontSource = new FolderFontSource(FontsDir, false);
fontSettings.SetFontsSources(new FontSourceBase[] { folderFontSource });

// Calling BuildAutomatic() will generate a fallback scheme that distributes accessible fonts across as many unicode character codes as possible
// In our case, it only has access to the handful of fonts inside the "MyFonts" folder
fontFallbackSettings.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Font.FallbackSettingsCustom.BuildAutomatic.xml");

// We can also load a custom substitution scheme from a file like this
// This scheme applies the "Arvo" font across the "0000-00ff" unicode blocks, the "Squarish Sans CT" font across "0100-024f",
// and the "M+ 2m" font in every place that none of the other fonts cover
fontFallbackSettings.Load(MyDir + "Custom font fallback settings.xml");

// Create a document builder and set its font to one that doesn't exist in any of our sources
// In doing that we will rely completely on our font fallback scheme to render text
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
builder.Font.Name = "Missing Font";

// Type out every unicode character from 0x0021 to 0x052F, with descriptive lines dividing unicode blocks we defined in our custom font fallback scheme
for (int i = 0x0021; i < 0x0530; i++)
    switch (i)
        case 0x0021:
            builder.Writeln("\n\n0x0021 - 0x00FF: \nBasic Latin/Latin-1 Supplement unicode blocks in \"Arvo\" font:");
        case 0x0100:
            builder.Writeln("\n\n0x0100 - 0x024F: \nLatin Extended A/B blocks, mostly in \"Squarish Sans CT\" font:");
        case 0x0250:
            builder.Writeln("\n\n0x0250 - 0x052F: \nIPA/Greek/Cyrillic blocks in \"M+ 2m\" font:");


doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Font.FallbackSettingsCustom.pdf");
