This lets you change the font, font size, style, and character set of the font for an open notepad window.


NotepadFont ("test", "Comic Sans MS", 11, 0, 0)

The arguments are:

notepad name
font name
font size
style bits
character set

If the font name is empty, then the font is unchanged.

If the font size is zero, then the font size is unchanged. The font size is in points.

The style should be a combination of the numbers below (zero is just plain text). For instance, bold and italic would be 3.

Style bits:

2 = italic
4 = underline
8 = strikeout
