BlackBerry JDE 4.7.0 API Reference

Great resource.

CTRL-F (Find Text): Font

it will give you the font class.

here is some example code when using Font in a paint method.

Code:
Font f = Font.getDefault().derive(Font.PLAIN, 18);
graphics.setFont(f);
graphics.setColor(Color.WHITE);
graphics.drawText("FUEL", 262, 0);
here is an example ("FUEL" top right):

Default Custon Fonts

Hi Bob

These won't let you to create a font of your's. This will only let you use those fonts that are actually installed (comes with blackberry or built-in fonts) in BB.
Here we want to know if how can we create our own new fonts/ locale fonts.
