The code in this article demonstrates how to use the Foxtools.fll library
commands to call Microsoft Windows application programming interface (API)
functions to determine if the current session of Windows is using Small or
Large Fonts. The following API functions are used:
The program first loads the Foxtools.fll library that is supplied with
FoxPro for Windows. Then it initializes some variables and retrieves the
handle for the display device. Next, it calls the GetDeviceCaps function,
requesting the number of pixels per logical inch along the display width
and height. If the number of pixels is equal to 96, Windows is running
with Small Fonts. If the number of pixels is equal to 120, Windows is
running with Large Fonts. The program then releases the handle to the
display device and the library.
SET LIBRARY TO SYS(2004) + "FOXTOOLS.FLL" ADDITIVE
* create variables to pass index to GetDeviceCaps()
* this value cane be found in the WINGDI.H file
LOGPIXELSX = 88
LOGPIXELSY = 90
* get the handle to the device context
lnGetDC = RegFN("GetDC","I","I")
lnHDC = CallFN(lnGetDC,0)
* get the number of pixels per logical inch
lnGetLogPix = RegFN("GetDeviceCaps","II","I")
lnLogPixX = CallFN(lnGetLogPix,lnHDC,LOGPIXELSX)
lnLogPixY = CallFN(lnGetLogPix,lnHDC,LOGPIXELSY)
* determine if small or large fonts, either lnLogPixX or
* lnLogPixY may be used to test for the values 96 or 120
IF lnLogPixX < 96
WAIT WINDOW "Windows is using smaller than Small Fonts"
ELSE IF InLogPixX = 96
WAIT WINDOW "Windows is using Small Fonts"
ELSE IF InLogPixX < 120
WAIT WINDOW "Windows is using between Small Fonts and Large Fonts"
ELSE IF IF lnLogPixX = 120
WAIT WINDOW "Windows is using Large Fonts"
WAIT WINDOW "Windows is using larger than Large Fonts"
* release the handle to the device context
lnRelease = RegFN("ReleaseDC","II","I")
* release the FOXTOOLS.FLL library
RELEASE LIBRARY SYS(2004) + "FOXTOOLS.FLL"
