iPhone Fonts


The system font on the iPhone is a good choice for many purposes. You can easily select it in a regular, bold or italic style using built-in font class methods. For example

UIFont *mainTitleFont = [UIFont boldSystemFontOfSize:14.0];
  UIFont *subTitleFont = [UIFont SystemFontOfSize:14.0];
  UIFont *textFont = [UIFont italicSystemFontOfSize:12.0];
But what if you want a font using both bold and italic at the same time, or a different typeface altogether? In that case, you can use the “fontWithName” method as follows.

UIFont *altFont = [UIFont fontWithName:@"Courier-Bold" size:14.0];
Another example:
UIFont *sampleFont = [UIFont fontWithName:@"MarkerFelt-Thin" size:14.0];

How to list the fonts:

// List all fonts on iPhone</span>
  NSArray *familyNames = [[NSArray alloc] initWithArray:[UIFont familyNames]];
  NSArray *fontNames;
  NSInteger indFamily, indFont;
  for (indFamily=0; indFamily<[familyNames count]; ++indFamily)
  {
      NSLog(@"Family name: %@", [familyNames objectAtIndex:indFamily]);
      fontNames = [[NSArray alloc] initWithArray:
          [UIFont fontNamesForFamilyName:
          [familyNames objectAtIndex:indFamily]]];
      for (indFont=0; indFont<[fontNames count]; ++indFont)
      {
          NSLog(@"    Font name: %@", [fontNames objectAtIndex:indFont]);
      }
      [fontNames release];
  }
  [familyNames release];
