Instance Method

screenFont(with:)

Returns a bitmapped screen font, when sent to a font object representing a scalable PostScript font, with the specified rendering mode, matching the receiver in typeface and matrix (or size), or nil if such a font can’t be found.

Declaration

func screenFont(with renderingMode: NSFontRenderingMode) -> NSFont

Discussion

For valid rendering modes, see NSFontRenderingMode.

Screen fonts are for direct use with the window server only. Never use them with Application Kit objects, such as in setFont: methods. Internally, the Application Kit automatically uses the corresponding screen font for a font object as long as the view is not rotated or scaled.
