Using a TTF Font in your Blackberry Application

I've searched the forums, and can't exactly come up with a 'straight' answer.

 

As per this document it says we CAN use custom fonts.

 

http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverables/11958/Load_and_use_a_custom_font_899948_11.jsp

 

Obviously this is for OS 5.0.

 

Can we do something similar for 4.5+ without using a Bitmap based font, or is that the only option?

Thanks


Harry

Re: Using a TTF Font in your Blackberry Application

There is no support for custom fonts per 5.0. 

 

Pre 5.0, you have to use the ones on the device, unless you wish to construct your own 'font', by supplying a bitmap for each character and displaying this yourself.
