    Set default font for all objects?


    How do I set a font type for all the objects I have created?
    Instead of sending this to all objects(buttons, labels, boxes…..):
    SendMessage(hwnd, WM_SETFONT, (WPARAM)GetStockObject(DEFAULT_GUI_FONT), MAKELPARAM(TRUE, 0));
    Can´t I joust use WM_SETFONT some other way to set the same font for all?

    For example, if I have a program with 100 buttons, I don’t want to send the same msg 100 times?
    Isn’t there a easier way to do the same thing?

    You can use EnumChildWindows() in order to send WM_SETFONT to child that wants it.
