    Have a look at the CFontDialog class.

    Could you please clarify?
    Are you having problem with changing font of the displayed text or you have a problem with font typeface selection?
    What is the type (class) of the window you use to display text?
    Could you post a snippet of the code you have a problem with?

    Re: Mfc..how to change font of string with menu button

    I am haveing problem changing font of the displayed text.
    it is MFC aplication.
    In the big white window "not dialog" we can see just text (just simple string object) lets say """CODE GURU""".so what i whant is to create simple toolbox button and when i press it """CODE GURU""" text that is already displayed to change font.
    Here is my button action.
    Code:
    ON_COMMAND(ID_EDIT_FONT, &CFesbView::OnEditFont)
    
    void CFesbView::OnEditFont()
    {
    CFesbDoc* pDoc = GetDocument();
    
    //this is my button action.
    //so what woud go here
    
    
    Invalidate();
    }

    Re: Mfc..how to change font of string with menu button

    To change a font for a window you have to:
    1. create a new font (CFont object)
    2. set this new font object to the window (using CWnd::SetFont method)
    3. note that CFont object must "live" until your window lives (or until you set another font to this window)
