How do I customize the stock property pages in an ocx? Specifically, how do I make the stock font property page display fixed pitch fonts only?

Thanks for any help,

MFC's COleFontPropPage is defined in ctlimpl.h and implemented in PpgFont.cpp.

Derive your property page from COleFontPropPage, and all you need to do is override

COleFontPropPage::EnumFontFamiliesCallBack
This function is called once for each font when Windows returns info about existing fonts.  It calls an AddFont method.
What you need to do is test the attributes of the font in question and determine if you'd like the font property page to show it in its combo box.

CFontPropPage will handle all the rest (size choices, bold/italic etc. and even user selection)

So all you need to do basically is impose a filter in between by overriding the method above.
