Font handling with the API




I Can't figure out how to use fonts with the API.

I have a dialog with a font popup,  then try to use the selected font to create a text element.


element.text.font is of type short, but I can't figure out how to retreive a short value from the fontpopup in the dialog.


I looked at the  Element_test, DG_Test  in the API exemple, but everywhere the font is hardcoded or use ACAPI_Element_GetDefaults.


Any help appreciated.
