How to use fsBold constant in a console application
« on: August 23, 2020, 08:57:46 pm »
Hello!

I have a project using BGRABitmapPack4NoGui.

This line refuses to be compiled:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1.   LBitmap.FontStyle := [fsBold];

Quote
Error: Incompatible types: got "Set Of TFontStyle" expected "TFontStyles"

What is wrong? How could I solve this?

It isn't very important: I could just use a standard LCL application. But I would like to understand why it doesn't work.

I attach the project.

Hi!

I have not looked into your code, but:

You don't draw on the bitmap,
you draw on the CANVAS of the bitmap!

So this should do it:

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. LBitmap.Canvas.FontStyle := [fsBold];
[/s]

Sorry too fast - ths is wrong

Hello Roland,

When using BGRABitmap with no gui, LCL dependency is avoided. To get the types actually used in BGRABitmap, you can use the units BGRAGraphics (and BGRAClasses in some cases as well) instead of Graphics and Classes.

Perfect. Thank you!
