    I am using this library C1.C1Pdf for generating PDF files.
    I am able to generate PDF file successfully. But I want to apply MS Gothic font on generated pdf file.

    How should I apply MS Gothic font while creating PDF?

    You can embed a font in the application and use it for the Font while drawing a string, after you have set the FontType property of C1PdfDocument to Embedded.
      C1PdfDocument1.FontType = C1.C1Pdf.FontTypeEnum.Embedded
    ' Add content to the page.
    Dim rect As RectangleF = C1PdfDocument1.PageRectangle
    rect.Inflate(-72, -72)
    Dim pfCol As New System.Drawing.Text.PrivateFontCollection
    pfCol.AddFontFile("../../MS Gothic.ttf")
    Dim font As Font = New Font(pfCol.Families(0), 12)
    C1PdfDocument1.DrawString(TextBox1.Text, font, Brushes.Black, rect)

    This has been shown in the attached sample.

    .FON files cannot be used while creating PDF , in C1Pdf.
    As per the description in the below mentioned documentation link for FontTypeEnum, ttf files can only be embedded for fonts, in pdf created using C1Pdf:
