c := ColorToBGRA(ColorToRGB(cllime));
                image.FontHeight := 15;
                image.FontAntialias := True;
                //image.FontStyle := [fsbold]; this gives error also

                 image.TextRect(rect(0, 0, 200, bmp.Height), report,
                  taLeftJustify, tlbottom, c);

I get message can not find fonts family arial in eazylazfreetype

I have a standard windows application that works just not fine just not in the console app..

So how do I get it to work as a console app and find the fonts so bgra can use it?

Here is an example provided by the author of BGRABitmap.

You must have arial.ttf in the program directory (even if you don't use it) and eventually another *.ttf file (if you use another font).

Your must also have this line at the beginning of your program:

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. TBGRABitmap.AddFreeTypeFontFolder(GetCurrentDir);

I hope that it helps you.
