  • Something strange (textbox font)

    When i create a font for a dialog or even a DDT textbox using Times New Roman, 6, it all goes well.

    In a special case i want to set this font into a edit box using CreateWindow ON the desktop (0) without WS_CHILD.
    No problem with this weirdness but the font doesn't go below than ~8 or 10.
    Iow, the font is not to be trusted for different fontnames/sizes.
    What is the problem here?

    It sounds like a LOGFONT issue, but as the desktop is the owner there may be other problems... I think we are going to have to see some code, EB.

    Out of curiosity, are you using %ANSI_CHARSET or are you using %DEFAULT_CHARSET, and also, what about the quality & precsion values you are using... they often force Windows to choose a font that is not exactly what was expected to be chosen.

    Also, I have to ask... what does "E.B." stand for? I've just realized that I don;t know your given name after all this time!

      The same fonthandle is used for hDC, DDT and textbox(no owner)

      I make use of the plain MakeFont procedure, so no fontfamilies etc. set.

      It's not a big problem, i could make use of DDT instead, but in my current task, the current method is more handy, just don't understand the fontdifference occuring...

        My problem is solved, some other interference was happening (restoring font)

        For the curious ones, it's no problem to set Times New Roman, 6 in a Edit box.
