Hi All

I am using a pdf generating library. It requires me to provide a font whenever I am printing a string in the pdf document. The problem is that the string that will be printed is the user input from a textbox and I may have to select different font for different language input.

I have found some information about font linking here

but I am not sure if there is a java way of doing this. Does anyone know how?

I agree. Here's the link:
