This article shows how to use fontdialog in vb.net application. I have already said that The FontDialog box is pretty familiar to anyone who has used a Windows based Word processor. The key point to remember is that its Font property returns a Font object that you assign to a control or form’s Font property.
Example code :
Suppose you have a Richtextbox named RichTextBox1 on your form,
Along with a button ‘Change Font’.
Private Sub btnFont_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnFont.Click
Dim FontDlg As New FontDialog
If FontDlg.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
If RichTextBox1.SelectedText.Trim = “” Then
RichTextBox1.Font = FontDlg.Font
RichTextBox1.SelectionFont = FontDlg.Font
