[Zope] How to load PIL fonts
Thu, 11 Oct 2001 13:34:05 +0200
The following snippet bothers me.
Run from the command line OK, from within Zope :- File not found ???
In my sitecustomize.py file I have appended the font directory to
pythons path "C:\\py21\\fonts\\100".
I did this both for my python2.1 executable and the zope python
I checked sys.path it has been appended.
Yet run the snippet from python the font file is found, but as an
external method it is not ???
OF COURSE I tried hard coding the path but all I get is ERROR: no
font glyph file found :(
import Image, ImageDraw, ImageFont
myfont = ImageFont.load_path("Arial Narrow Bold_18_100.pil")
white = (255,255,255)
black = (0,0,0)
image = Image.new('RGB',(100,36),white)
draw = ImageDraw.Draw(image)
draw.text((0,4),'chris', fill=black, font=myfont)
What am I missing ???
Thanks in advance Chris
