Supported Font Detection

ScottPlot comes with font detection methods which help identify the best installed font for displaying text which may contain international characters.

This code sample is specific to ScottPlot 5 (details)
ScottPlot.Plot myPlot = new();

string chinese = "测试";
myPlot.Axes.Title.Label.Text = chinese;
myPlot.Axes.Title.Label.FontName = Fonts.Detect(chinese);

string japanese = "試験";
myPlot.Axes.Left.Label.Text = japanese;
myPlot.Axes.Left.Label.FontName = Fonts.Detect(japanese);

string korean = "테스트";
myPlot.Axes.Bottom.Label.Text = korean;
myPlot.Axes.Bottom.Label.FontName = Fonts.Detect(korean);

myPlot.SavePng("demo.png", 400, 300);

Automatic Font Detection

The Plot’s Style class contains a method which automatically sets the fonts of common plot objects to the font most likely able to display the characters they contain.

This code sample is specific to ScottPlot 5 (details)
ScottPlot.Plot myPlot = new();

var sig1 = myPlot.Add.Signal(Generate.Sin());
var sig2 = myPlot.Add.Signal(Generate.Cos());

sig1.Label = "测试"; // Chinese
sig2.Label = "테스트"; // Korean
myPlot.ShowLegend();

myPlot.Title("测试"); // Chinese
myPlot.YLabel("試験"); // Japanese
myPlot.XLabel("테스트"); // Korean

myPlot.Font.Automatic(); // set font for each item based on its content

myPlot.SavePng("demo.png", 400, 300);
