font (ttf) file location problem

2005-12-11 05:22

hi all,

 

i create reports in pdf format.

i use "david.ttf" for my pdfFontName.

 

my font is found by jasper reports only when i write pdfFontName="c:\windows\fonts\davis.ttf" in the jrxml file itself.

 

in any other way it gives me the JRException:

"Could not load the following font :

pdfFontName : "david.ttf"

pdfEncoding : "Identity-H" isPdfEmbedded : "false"

 

from the JRPdfExporter class.

 

adding jasperreports.properties file with a line for the fontdir - didn't help!

 

can you please recommend me a more flexible way for telling jasper reports where's the font directory?

 

thanks a lot

Rivka

Just create a JAR Archiv and put your font(s) inside and put that jar in your Java-Classpath... or if it's just on that one machine you mentioned... add the directory "C:\WindowsFonts\" to your java-classpath. (or just the single ttf-file)

 

I do have some similiar problems but on a more complex environment - see here (also for Teodor comments and latest changes related to this topic):

hi c-box

 

i am working with the IBM Websphere application server.

 

as much as i know, adding a jar to my web project classpath is done by copying the jar to the "lib" directory of my project.

 

i copied the ttf file to the lib dir - didn't work

and also to the "classes" dir - didn't work either.

 

so, what do you mean by adding it to the claspath?

did i do something wrong?

 

thanks a lot

Rivka
