Information in this document applies to any platform.


When changing an edit control from single line to multiple lines, the font size becomes smaller, and the font is changed from Arial to Times New Roman.


  1. In FDA, in an existing application, add an edit control,
  2. Set the edit control read only, multiple lines
  3. Save and run the application locally
  4. Observe the font is made smaller and changed from Arial to Times New Roman.
  5. Call the system function Set Edit Control Font to set a certain Font and size.
  6. Save and run the application locally
  7. Observe the desired font is not taken.
Note: Another way to reproduce is to disable the edit control instead of setting it to read only, the result is the same, the desired font is not set.
