EnumFonts info  Overview  Group

The EnumFonts function enumerates the fonts available on a specified device. For each font with the specified typeface name, the EnumFonts function retrieves information about that font and passes it to the application-defined callback function. This callback function can process the font information as desired. Enumeration continues until there are no more fonts or the callback function returns zero.

This function is provided for compatibility with earlier versions of Microsoft Windows. Win32-based applications should use the EnumFontFamilies function.

int EnumFonts(

    HDC hdc,

// handle to device context

    LPCTSTR lpFaceName,

// pointer to font typeface name string

    FONTENUMPROC lpFontFunc,

// pointer to callback function

    LPARAM lParam 

// address of application-supplied data



Identifies the device context.
Points to a null-terminated character string that specifies the typeface name of the desired fonts. If lpFaceName is NULL, EnumFonts randomly selects and enumerates one font of each available typeface.
Points to the application-defined callback function. For more information about the callback function, see the EnumFontsProc function.
Points to any application-defined data. The data is passed to the callback function along with the font information.

Return Values

The return value is the last value returned by the callback function. Its meaning is defined by the application.


Use EnumFontFamilies instead of EnumFonts. The EnumFontFamilies function differs from the EnumFonts function in that it retrieves the style names associated with a TrueType font. With EnumFontFamilies, you can retrieve information about unusual font styles (for example, Outline) that cannot be enumerated using the EnumFonts function.
