Instance Property


The bitmapped screen font for the current font.


@NSCopying var screen: NSFont { get }


For a font object that represents a scalable PostScript font, this property contains a bitmapped screen font matching the receiver in typeface and matrix (or size), or nil if such a font cannot be found. For a bitmapped screen font, the value in this property is nil.

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.
