    Simple sample
    #Compile Exe
    #Dim All
    #Register None
    #Include ""
    Function PbMain
        Local hDlg As Long
        Dialog New 0, "Test", 0, 0, 150, 60, %WS_SYSMENU To hDlg
        Dim a(1 : 2) As String
        a$(1) = "Item 1": a$(2) = "Item 2"
        Local lf As LOGFONT
        Local hFont As Long, lResult As Long
        GetObject GetStockObject(%ANSI_VAR_FONT), SizeOf(lf), ByVal VarPtr(lf)
        lf.lfHeight = -14
        lf.lfWeight = %FW_BOLD
        lf.lfFaceName = "Arial"
        hFont = CreateFontIndirect(lf)
        Control Add ListBox, hDlg, 101, a$(), 10, 10, 50, 40
        Control Add ComboBox, hDlg, 102, a$(), 70, 10, 60, 40, %CBS_DROPDOWNLIST Or %WS_TABSTOP
        Control Send hDlg, 101, %WM_SETFONT, hFont, 0
        Control Send hDlg, 102, %WM_SETFONT, hFont, 0
        Dialog Show Modal hDlg

    Create a font (search for MAKEFONT in the forums and you should find some example subroutines), and then send a %WM_SETFONT message to the control in question. This can be done in the %WM_INITDIALOG message handler in your dialog callback.

    Don't forget to hold the font handle in a STATIC variable in your dialog callback, and use DeleteObject() in response to the %WM_DESTROY message (this ensures that the font is destroyed and you don't cause a memory leak while your app is running).

    Changing Font style in PBDLL

    I am presently quite proud of myself, having written my first ever Windows programme.

    The font is the default font of PBDLL60, MS Sans, I think.

    I have a Listbox in which I wish to use Courier or another fixed width font so that certain data lines up in columns.

    Can anyone offer advice on changing the font for the text in the listbox?
