Greetings ,

Please inform me how to change The Column font Type and size In Apex classic report?

In legacy report Builder 6 it is easy Just Select The column and choose the font you want and the size for it
how this can be accomplished in APEX ?

Looking forward to hearing from you

and we said...

Fonts in browsers are controlled by styles

If you check the page source for an APAEX page, you see each region/item/etc has an associated class which is source from the template/theme options for your APEX app.

Head over to to see how universal theme works, and discover the names of classes that you can tailor with templates and the like.

Also, here's an intro to templating in APEX

I Found a way to change the font type Through the HTML Expression of the Column as following:-

1- adding font file to the shared component static files
2- adding the following HTML expression to the column

<span style="font-family:IDAutomationHC39M Free Version;src: url(#APP_IMAGES#IDAutomationHC39M Free Version.ttf);
background-color: yellow; color: red;">#BARCODE#</span>

Please Note the Font Family"IDAutomationHC39M Free Version" also Please note that the Url refers to the static file.
The Output will be The Bracodes In symbols
