Well a long time has past, and I was not able to post anything good so I thought to not let my blog die I post something pretty simple but also powerful LINQ is a great future which you can find in .NET 3.5 and above it makes programming a lot easier since Microsoft has worked pretty hard.
So in this simple example I show you how you can retrieve all the font names using LINQ
Okay this is the function which is mostly self explained
Private Function GetFontNames() As List(Of String) Dim Query = From fntName In FontFamily.Families Select fntName.Name Return Query.ToList End Function
you can call it from your application like this
ListBox1.DataSource = GetFontNames()
In this example i used a ListBox and bound it’s datasource to the List which the GetFontNames()
This is how all will look like, as I’m not gonna write down what your able to do with link i suggest you to read more about
LINQ on the MSDN page for LINQ: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb308959.aspx .
I wish you all got time reading, hope I’ll get some free time so I can post anything cool in here.
