BC4.52/Win95: setting font type in dialog

I am writing a Win32 Win95 app using BC4.52, and am trying to set the font type for a dialog by using the FONT command in my resource file.  The file builds OK, but the resulting executable ends up using the system font no matter what font I select.  Is this a problem between Win95 and BC4.52?  If so, is there a work-around?

You have to making a call to GetStockObject in your Dialog SetupWindow for each new member
Example :
in SetupWindow :

TDialog::SetupWindow()
myStaticText1->SetWindowFont( (HFONT)                   GetStockObject(OEM_FIXED_FONT) , TRUE );
//  myStaticText1 was first cretad with new in Constructor
   
See OnLine Help for GetStockObject, you 'll see that Windows take SYSTEM_FONT (default value)

Hope this will help

I have tried this with 5.02 and found that the fonts in the Dialog changed to what I said they should be.
Maybe you can post the resource code that you are using.

This answer solves my problem--thanks!  BTW, the FONT parameter in the DIALOG statement DOES work (I misspoke), but is limited--the font weight defaults to "Bold".  The Borland documentation says to use the WM_SETFONT message at runtime to set the font otherwise.  Does version 5 have this limitation?
