I'm just wondering how I would go about changing the font of a static text control on a dialog box at run time. my goal is to be able to make certain text bold while its related action is being performed, and set it back to normal after its action has finished (setting bold focus on the next line of text).
the problem is is that I really don't have any experience modifying text appearance at all. I have absolutely no idea which API calls I could use for this. I cannot set the static text to bold by default, as that would deplete the purpose, the whole idea is emphasizing which actions are currently being performed by my program. I know it's possible, and probably not that hard, I just don't know where to start.
any help here would be greatly appreciated. thank you in advance.
