font creation from bitmaps

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

Hi, does anybody know how to create either opentype or truetype fonts from a series of bitmaps? My current project needs to emulate an dot matrix LED display that has several bespoke font files which I will interpret and create into bitmaps. I then need to use these bitmaps as a 'font'. Any ideas?


Many thanks in advance?

on the button inside the update panel, (btnSelect)

protected void btnSelect_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

Label1.Text = Convert.ToString(radioButtons.Count);

SQL/MTS: Automating the Creation of COM+ Components for a Database Schema


Using Microsoft Windows DNA architecture as a guideline, it's possible to create scalable multitier database applications with COM+ and Microsoft Transaction Services. In fact, you can use existing table definitions to automatically build the MTS/COM+ business logic layer and data access components for your application. This article will walk you through the development of database transactions by mapping the transactions to automatically generated MTS/COM+ components. This technique can greatly simplify the task of creating components for a large project.

Association creation error


In the dbml Designer surface in VS2010, I am associating two views from a database which I am only granted for View access. 

The View1 has 
  Site (smallint, not null)
  LocationID (int, not null)

The View2 has
  Site (int, not null)
  LocationID (int, not null)

Due to the incompatible types between this two, the association can not be created.  Is there other way to create the association, such as cast(View1.Site as int) in the assocation?

MySite creation never completes

Our moss 2007 SP2 farm currently won't create any My Sites.  When a new user visits my.domain.com they get the "Please wait while your personal site is setup for the first time and the default document libraries and lists are created.  This may take several seconds." message but it just sits there forever.

I'm not sure when it stopped working as we only really create new accounts at certain periods during the year - it was working 6 months ago.

I can't find any log messages about the creation/failure - any tips on where to look?


Is it possible to change the title bar background and the font style on default template?



Is there any way to change the default top link /title bar picture and the fonts of the title without breaking anything in the layout/structure?

I have changed the theme to Obsedian and I would also like to change the picture of the title bar of this theme and also the font/style of the title, top link bar, menus..etc. Is there a way to do this?

Please note: I am using WSS 3.0 and I am not the Administrator of the sharepoint. I am only the site admin of some sites on this sharepoint. I can do some basic customization using SPD.

Basically, what I am trying to do is that I want to set up a sharepoint site, however I want to make it NOT look like a sharepoint site.Well I know this is possible, but for my case it might be just partially possible due to the limitation that I am not the Site collection admin and hence I do not have direct access to the server itself.

What I want is to hide most of the sharepoint links/menus/bars, etc and use my own buttons/hyperlinks etc .. for user to navigate on the sites.

Thanks in advance for your help/advices.

Trouble with Font Definition in Accordion Control


 VWD 2008 Express.

I have a page on which I have an accordion control.  The accordion control seems to be overriding the font definition I have for the page body in my CSS stylesheet.  Here is what is happening.  Can anyone help?  Thanks.

1.  When I open the page and the top panel opens, it displays with the correct font family, size, etc.

2.  If I close and reopen the top panel, it displays with another font family and looks bad.

3.  All subsequent panels, when opened, display the font in a different family than specified in my CSS stylesheet.

This is what I have in the stylesheet both for the body and for the .accordioncontent:

    background-color: #E4E1C2;
    background: url(../images/background.jpg) repeat left top;
    font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman" , Times, serif;
    color: #666666;
    font-size: 12pt;
    border-top: none;
    padding-top: 10px;
    font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman" , Times, serif;
    color: #666666;
    font-size: 12pt;

Compare 2 WPF bitmaps

Hi I have a question. I have an app which take some snapshots of the screen from time to time(as bitmaps)and compares the current screen with the previous one. This must work very fast and I was curios if I can use BitmapSource to achieve better performance(using GPU). The current solution compares pixel by pixel the 2 GDI+ bitmaps but it doesnt work as desired. Thank you

Why does .NET Framework 4 client profile slow down boot time network creation?

I've been running a Windows XP sp3 KVM virtual machine for a long time now, and some recent update made the initial network startup go from a few seconds at boot time to around 90 seconds. Using Add/Remove program to uninstall recent updates points the finger at .NET Framework 4 client profile. With it installed, if I right click on network and ask for properties right after booting, there is a 90 second delay before the network dialog with the list of network interfaces finally appears. In addition, the network drive I have automounted at login is not accessible for the same 90 seconds. As an experiment, I tried going into the device manager and deleting the network interface, and if I reboot after that it takes 90 seconds for the new hardware wizard to appear. All these 90 second delays vanish if I remove this .NET update. The network comes up as soon as the system boots.

CSS font is working in FireFox but not in Internet Explorer 8.0

Hi All, I tried a lot but I could not figure out why the IE is not taking font size and name in to effect from CSS. In firefox my website could be seen very nice but in IE it is little bit unshiny and font size is bigger For the difference which I am talking about could be seen  if your PC have both firefox and IE installed. Please go to http://www.nymidtowndentistry.com open it in FF and IE and you could see the font and alignment related change. All these settings are in body element of CSS. Do you any idea regarding this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for your time. -Hitesh
