TrueType and F3 fonts behave exactly like Type1 fonts, except /FontType returns 42 for TrueType and 7 for F3 fonts. For example, the following PostScript code works the same regardless of the kind of font.

findfont 50 scalefont setfont 10 10 moveto (ABC)

/FontType get ==

The kind of font returned depends on the current DPS internal resource path.
