CFontDialog::GetCurentFont()  fails

Hello,

I am invoking a create font dialog and after the user presses O.K.
I try to read out the selected font:

CFontDialog fontDialog;
int         result;
LOGFONT     fontInfo;

result = fontDialog.DoModal ()

if (result == IDOK)
{
   fontDialog.GetCurrentFont (&fontInfo);
}


The call to GetCurrentFont however results in a failed assertion
ASSERT(m_hWnd != NULL).

According to the documentation this function is intended to be called
after the user has pressed o.k. and the dialog is destroyed. So I cannot
understand the assertion.

Can you explain me whether this is right or wrong?

Bye
Wolfgang

Well, I use VC++ 5.0 and have tried your code. I didn't resolve any problems.
I stepped into the MFC-code and found, that it doesn't matter, if hWnd is NULL:
void CFontDialog::GetCurrentFont(LPLOGFONT lplf)
{
      ASSERT(lplf != NULL);

      if (m_hWnd != NULL)
            SendMessage(WM_CHOOSEFONT_GETLOGFONT, 0, (DWORD)(LPVOID)lplf);
      else
            *lplf = m_lf;
}

But under VC++1.52 I had the problems you describe.
But you can just use the "new"-code form VC++ 5.0:
      CFontDialog            fontDialog;
      int                        result;
      LOGFONT                  *pFontInfo;

      result = fontDialog.DoModal ();

      if (result == IDOK)
      {
            pFontInfo = &(fontDialog.m_lf);
      }
