Java Program to Check Which Fonts are Available in a Local System

This is a Java program to know which fonts are available in a local system.

Problem Description

We have to write a program in Java such that it generates a list of fonts available in a Local System using GraphicsEnvironment.

Expected Input and Output

For knowing which fonts are available in a Local System, we can have the following set of input and output.
To know the fonts available: On the execution of the program, it is expected that a list is generated which contains the name of fonts available in the local system.

Problem Solution

1. Create a variable to get the local graphics environment from GraphicsEnvironment class. The GraphicsEnvironment class contains a collection of GraphicsDevice objects and Font objects available in a Local or Remote platform.
2. Get List of Font Family available using getAvailableFontFamilyNames() method.
3. Display the list.

Program/Source Code

Here is source code of the Java Program to get the list of font available in a local system. The program is successfully compiled and tested using javac compiler on Fedora 30.

  1. /* Java Program to get list of fonts available*/
  2. import java.awt.GraphicsEnvironment;
  3. class Fonts_Available
  4. {
  5. 	//Driver Function
  6. 	public static void main(String[] args)
  7. 	{
  8. 		//Get the local graphics environment
  9. 		GraphicsEnvironment local_env; 
  10.                 local_env= GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment();
  11. 		//Get available font names
  12. 		String allfonts[] = local_env.getAvailableFontFamilyNames();
  13. 		//Display the list of fonts
  14. 		for(int i=0;i<allfonts.length;i++)
  15. 			System.out.println(allfonts[i]);
  16. 	}
  17. }
Program Explanation

1. Variable local_env gets the local graphics environment.
2. Use getAvailableFontFamilyNames() to get the fonts available and store it in an string array.
3. Display the array.

Runtime Test Cases

Here’s the run time test case for generating list of fonts available in a Local System.

Test case 1 – Here’s the runtime output to get the list of fonts available. The program displays the list which contains the name of fonts available in the local system.
