Including Non-standard Fonts with an application

Is it possible to include fonts with an application? I have an application where I would rather include a specific font (if I can find it). Not sure how I would bundle fonts within the distribution.

 

Any thoughts?

Extenral fonts are not supported.

Re: Including Non-standard Fonts with an application

I think adding a font would require developing a downloadable theme. I've never looked into it, so I can't offer any more.

 

The only other option I can think of is to build your own font rendering engine, but that's probably more work than most projects could justify. Plus it still doesn't integrate with the BlackBerry font architecture, so you'd also need your own text analysis layer on top. Plus your own custom fields. Hmm...forget I mentioned it. Smiley Happy
