AddFontResource info  Overview  Group

The AddFontResource function adds the font resource from the specified file to the Windows font table. The font can subsequently be used for text output by any Windows-based application.

int AddFontResource(

    LPCTSTR lpszFilename 

// pointer to font-resource filename



Pointer to a null-terminated character string that contains a valid font file filename. The filename may specify either a .FON font resource file, a .FNT raw bitmap font file, a .TTF raw TrueType file, or a .FOT TrueType resource file.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value specifies the number of fonts added.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.


Any application that adds or removes fonts from the Windows font table should notify other windows of the change by sending a WM_FONTCHANGE message to all top-level windows in the operating system. The application should send this message by calling the SendMessage function and setting the hwnd parameter to HWND_BROADCAST.

When an application no longer needs a font resource that it loaded by calling the AddFontResource function, it must remove the resource by calling the RemoveFontResource function.
