Description

Precision Symbol Picker displays the listing of all the fonts installed on the system, the complete character map for each of them and lets the user choose a specific character. It provides the sum of the features you can find in the "Insert Symbol" dialog box present in many word processing programs (e.g. Microsoft Word) and in the "Character map" program shipped with Windows.

The user can simply choose one (or more character) for use in your program, or he can copy them into the clipboard.

You can customize the title of the window, the size of the characters displayed both in the character map and in the zoom area, the name of the font that is initially chosen when the window appears, and the character that is initially highlighted.

It was written entirely in C++ and is composed of strongly speed and size-optimized code.

It is only 60k in size. This means that it is very fastly loaded into your application and it does not impact on your final application size.

Precision Symbol Picker is a powerful OCX control for your applications which displays the listing of all the fonts installed on the system, the complete character map for each of them and lets the user choose a specific character. It provides the sum of the features you can find in the "Insert Symbol" dialog box present in many word processing programs (e.g. Microsoft Word) and in the "Character map" program shipped with Windows.


Features

Precision Symbol Picker displays a dialog window that is larger and more detailed than the "Character map" or the "Insert Symbol" window. A full-featured list control displays all the fonts installed in the system, an icon tells the type of each font: TrueType, raster or device.

A large, high resolution area is reserved for the zoomed version of the currently selected character. The user can easily choose the desired font in the list control by using the mouse or by using the up, down, page up, page down arrow keys. At the same time, with the right and left key it is possible to switch to the following or proceeding symbol.

The user can simply choose one (or more character) for use in your program, or he can copy them into the clipboard.

High customisability

You can customize the title of the window, the size of the characters displayed both in the character map and in the zoom area, the name of the font that is initially chosen when the window appears, and the character that is initially highlighted.

The possibility to choose more than one character can be disabled and it is possible to choose whether to show the "Copy to clipboard" button or not.

Optimization

Precision Symbol Picker was written entirely in C++ and is composed of strongly optimized code. The only required libraries are the MFC and MSVCRT dll that are shipped with every version of Microsoft Windows. You do not need any additional libraries.


Small size

Precision Symbol Picker is 60k in size. This means that it is very fastly loaded into your application and it does not significantly increase your final application size.
