Changing font size of FireMonkey TStringGrid - Is this possible?

I have a tStringGrid displayed on sample IOS app using XE4 but cannot find anyway to change the font size which is tiny by default and just about unreadable.

Anyone know how this font size, type etc can be set? The tStringGrid control is really unusable unless it can be changed.

Thanks

Join the queue.

My preferred method would be to create a custom style for TTextCell, but they've made it devilishly difficult to do with the supplied software.

Programatically change the font color of a Label in FireMonkey
Hello. I'd like to know how to change the color and the opacity of a Label in firemonkey. In VCL, I just change this properties of the label and it works normally.

changing default font size does not affect font size on form buttons and input fields.
Hello, in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=305109 I propose that changing the default font size in Preferences should also change the font sizes for form controls. On windows it works this way. Concerning Unix, though, the form controls keep their size, even if you adjust the default font size in Firefox preferences. This makes for ugly form controls if you do not adjust your GTK settings along with your Firefox default font size. But there is a workaround: you can also make Firefox scale the form controls by applying the following changes to 'font:' lines in res/forms.css: -moz-field -> small sans-serif -moz-fixed -> medium mono -moz-list -> small sans-serif -moz-button -> small sans-serif Still, I do not understand this discrepancy in rendering (Windows in contrast to Unix Firefox) as it obviously can be avoided. Now this bug is resolved WONTFIX, so I'd like to know why my proposal is objected. Can anybody please explain this to me? Cheers Daniel Kabs ...

Firemonkey
I am so dammed frustrated with firemonkey and livebindings. The VCL + DB Controls were fast, consistent, and stable. This fmx framework is crap. It's slow on my i5 Macbook. I'd be embarrassed to put out an app like this. The help is lousy and apparently very few people are using it based on my failed Google searches. I can see why. Livebindings is cute when you have a few fields, but it a rats nest when you have a moderately complex form and have to wire up dozens of controls. There is no official support for nullable fields in livebindings which blows my mind....

Cannot change the font or font size of PicButtn ocx.
Hello, I am using PB 6.5.1 Enterprise for Win32. I inserted a PicButtn ocx control into a window and changed the font and font size using the OLE Control Properties button on the OLE Custom Control window. I saved and closed the window. When I re-opened the window the picbuttn ocx font and font size had changed back to their initial settings. I believe this is a standard OCX, and it with PB, although I am not positive. I was not able to locate an associated help file. Then name of the OCX is PicButtn.OCX, dated 9/24/96 11:54am. It was located in the Windows/System dir...

Change font/font size in Seamonkey2.0
Hi, up to now i run SM1.1.18 under eCS2.0RC6a and tried to see how SM2.0 is usable for me. I am disappointed concerning windows display. The font size used are to large to describe the buttons and all other stuff including contents of some windows. My old window size is mostly to small to keep the text. The used times roman font is also not my favorite. My question is: how can i modify or add which statements to about:config to adapt SM2.0 to look like SM1.1.18. Thanks and have a nice day.

how to make Font.Size subproperty to change the text size of all the child controls
I have a control that is used to get a date (dropdown calendar) and is made up by a label and three dropdownlists. I overrided the Enabled property so when it is true/false all of the child controls are Enabled/Disabled. That was easy. But now I need to change the text size of the composite control.When I do that, only the text size of the label changes. If the size would be a property of the WebControls that would be easy. Just override it and that's it. But size is a subproperty of Font. How can I make it work ? Any help is appreciated...

I am using Mozilla 1.75. Is there any way I can change the default font size in the browser "Font Zoom"? It defaults to 100% which is understandable. With my vision not being too great, I'd like it to default to say 120% or even 150%. I do have the Accessibar, but it would still be nice for the browser to default to a larger font size. Or would this be a wish-list item? Thanks, Don Don wrote: > I am using Mozilla 1.75. Is there any way I can change the default font > size in the browser "Font Zoom"?
