Fontdialog code not working: want to change diagram text node

I could not figure out how to use the xp bar and had to go with a tool bar. As such, I could not add the font combobox to the toolbar at design time. I went, therefore, with a button. On the buttons click event, I want to open a fontdialog and have the user choose a font and its size to apply to a text node. I cannot get it to work.

This code not only shows the dialog box twice, but the font and its size is not applied to the text. I don't know where I'm going wrong. I've tried it with several different combinations of code. Please help.

Private Sub btnFontDialog_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnFontDialog.Click
Dim strFamilyName As String = FontDialog1.ShowDialog.ToString
If FontDialog1.ShowDialog() <> DialogResult.Cancel Then
Me.Diagram1.Controller.TextEditor.FamilyName = strFamilyName
End If
End Sub
Thank you.

Hi White,

We are sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

Here is the sample for XPTool bar.


Here is how you can populate the menu, Add the items in the Customize dialog and Drag and Drop to the toolbar.

Here is the code snippet for changing the TextEditor font name through font dialog.

If FontDialog1.ShowDialog(diagram1) = DialogResult.OK Then
diagram1.Controller.TextEditor.FamilyName = FontDialog1.Font.FontFamily.Name
End If

Please let me know if you have any concerns.
