pointsize = <title>pointsize = int;

pointsize = int;

Display text at this point size.

This attribute specifies the point size for text displayed by a dialog box. The point size affects both text displayed by the dialog box and the text typed by the user. Note that the pointsize attribute controls all text in a dialog box, but only if the typeface attribute has been set as well.

int: an integer in the range from -2,147,483,648 to +2,147,483,647. A larger number represents larger text.

The pointsize attribute is unique to the implementation of DCL included with progeCAD.


pointsize = 10;

NOTE A point is 1/72 of an inch. More accurately, there are 72.72 points per inch. Typical point sizes used for dialog box text ranges between 8 (smaller text) and 12 (larger text) points. Do not use a large point size; doing so causes the dialog box to become too large for the screen, especiallyfor a 640- x 480-pixel screen.

typeface = "string";
