You Asked

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 https://apex.oracle.com/ut 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

Reviewer: Ahmad Hussein from Jordan , Saudi Arabia

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
