    Changing the font of the edit to Courier

    I know that I would sent the child wind a WM_SETFONT message, but what would the WPARAM be to set it to Courier? Thanks!

    Hey ok here ya go:


    Make this fucntion:

    void SetEditFont(HWND hwndEdit, LPCSTR lpFontName, int FontSize, DWORD dwCharSet, BOOL bBold, BOOL bItalic, BOOL bUnderLine, BOOL bStrikeOut)
    {
    HFONT hFont;
    DWORD Bold = 200;
    if (bBold == TRUE) { Bold = FW_BOLD; }
    hFont = CreateFont(FontSize, 0, 0, 0, Bold, bItalic, bUnderLine, bStrikeOut,
    dwCharSet, 0, 0, PROOF_QUALITY, 0, lpFontName);
    SendMessage(hwndEdit, WM_SETFONT, (WPARAM)hFont, TRUE);

    }


    Then call it like this:

    SetEditFont(hWndEdit, "Courier", 0, ANSI_CHARSET, FALSE, FALSE, FALSE, FALSE);




    Worked for me

    Hope that helps, i havnt had time to test that code tonight, but i think its ok...
