Default User defined font style and size

I am trying to modify a DrawText() statment that I copied from an indicator I found on the forum. The code displays the bar number below each bar.

DrawText("bar number" + CurrentBar, true,printBarNumber.ToString(), 0,
Low[0] - 3* TickSize , 0, Color.Black, new Font ("Arial", 12, FontStyle.Bold),
StringAlignment.Center, /* Color.Black */ Color.Transparent, Color.White, 0);
I would like to be able to change FontStyle and size via user input. I found a code sample to change the font color but am stumped about the style font and size. Can I use something like Enum()?

You can setup user defined inputs for these. Please find attached an indicator that has some non-usual user defined input, perhaps you can figure out from this code how to do what you ask. Unfortunately this level of coding is unsupported, however.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
