Font.IsSystemFont Property

Gets a value indicating whether the font is a member of SystemFonts.

Namespace:  System.Drawing
Assembly:  System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public bool IsSystemFont { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the font is a member of SystemFonts; otherwise, false. The default is false.

When the user changes the system font, the IsSystemFont property could return true, even if the font is not actually a system font. To avoid this situation, if you are using system fonts in your application, you should track user preference changes by handling the UserPreferenceChanging or UserPreferenceChanged event.
