Customer Question
How to I programmatically...

How to I programmatically find how many Characters / glyph are in a font file so I can parse the file for the Unicode number of the last Glyph then display those on a control. Many fonts / font families have hundreds of character after the standard 256 characters

Technician's Assistant: What programs and versions are you using?

VB.net

Technician's Assistant: What is your ideal outcome? How can we solve this for you?

I need to list all of these inside a program rather than is a third party program out side the program I am using.

Is it any font in particular?
Arial and Times New Roman both contain 1,674 glyphs.

Unicode fonts are the largest out there, and can contain 65,535 glyphs, which is the architectural glyph limit of font files, whether they are TrueType, OpenType, etc.
