The code in this article demonstrates how to use the Foxtools.fll library commands to call Microsoft Windows application programming interface (API) functions to determine if the current session of Windows is using Small or Large Fonts. The following API functions are used:
The program first loads the Foxtools.fll library that is supplied with FoxPro for Windows. Then it initializes some variables and retrieves the handle for the display device. Next, it calls the GetDeviceCaps function, requesting the number of pixels per logical inch along the display width and height. If the number of pixels is equal to 96, Windows is running with Small Fonts. If the number of pixels is equal to 120, Windows is running with Large Fonts. The program then releases the handle to the display device and the library.
