I am using Skia c++ api  to draw test on android system  using function "
  drawSimpleText( text, strlen(text), SkTextEncoding::kUTF8, SkIntToScalar(x), SkIntToScalar(y), font, paint); "
 but it is not drawing anything on the screen, then i checked  countGlyphs   using  below code, i am getting  countGlyphs  Zero  


SkTypeface *typeface;
SkFont font;
typeface = font.getTypefaceOrDefault();

printf("typeface->countGlyphs = %d", typeface->countGlyphs()

On Fiddle same code is working

This implies that font.getTypefaceOrDefault(); is returning the
fallback empty SkTypeface (which has no glyphs and draws nothing).
Your build of Skia needs to contain some means of creating SkTypefaces
from data (generally by building the proper SkFontMgr implementations
and using them). In general SkFont::getTypefaceOrDefault and
SkCanvas::drawSimpleText are both "toy" APIs. They are interesting to
get something working quickly, but should not be used in any serious
application. It is best to avoid use of a default SkFontMgr and
drawSimpleText does no text shaping (only works as expected with
simple fonts without any shaping information and does no font
