This is the error.

Yes how to solve this error van you help me

Since we can't see your code, the most likely thing I can think of is that you're doing something like Context.getAssets(), which is wrong because getAssets() is an instance method but Context is a class. You need to call it on an instance of Context instead, typically by calling getContext() on some other Android object. If you've got an instance of Form lying around, it is a Context so you could also use that.





After changing context.getassets to form.getasset im getting
this error:

@ewpatton please help

Use container.$form().getAssets();

Not working

Because this is a util class, you won't have necessarily have access to the form. However, I think the View class in Android has a getContext method, which you should be able to use to get the necessary context for asset lookups.


Well, I have an idea for you @Tauqir_Tech_BD That will work for sure (I am also testing it)

Make a file selection box under label (Properties) add a custom font interface label before it to tell users what it does. Now, add the code that will set that font face to the one of .ttf file chosen by user. U can see the code of You font extension by Ken for reference to how to do so

Hello everyone,
Maybe this will help to simplify the problem, with a very simple example, working with android 12

You can download the apk from this link:

To know the codes of each character:

  1. Install Regular Font Awesome 6 Free here:

  1. install the font

  2. find or run in Windows: Charmap.exe

Select the font and you will find the icons of this font

  1. Before clicking on a character/icon, you will see the tooltip of the code that corresponds to it, we need the last 4 digits (exclude "U+") and those are the codes that the apk example puts.

The rest is to select that inputbox, and the slider to make it expand

To make it clickable, I used the ClickZ extension. see at:



All you have to do is to get a ttf file(you can get in on and then upload it and use it. There are many fonts to choose :slightly_smiling_face:. Like this one, Pixelify Sans - Google Fonts
just go there and download a font.
