How do I set the default app font confidently?

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

I want to set a my app's default font to BBAlpha Sans, 20px height. Here is the code I use:

 

 

try {
            FontFamily fontFam = FontFamily.forName("BBAlpha Sans");
            Font font = fontFam.getFont(FontFamily.SCALABLE_FONT, 20).derive(Font.PLAIN);            
            Font.setDefaultFont(font);
}
catch(Exception e) {} 

 

 

How confident can I be that BBAlpha Sans will always be present and not throw an exception?

If confidence is low, what is my best bet to get the closest available font?

 

Thanks,

Ty

getFontFamilies() allows you to check the available fonts in advance.
