When I use the standard CFontDialog, the sample text displayed is AaBbYyZz.   How would I set the value to be something else?

Once the dialog is created, you can use this code:

#include <dlgs.h>

CWnd* pWindow = GetDlgItem(stc5);
ASSERT(pWindow != NULL);
pWindow->SetText("This is the text you want.");

If you're creating a modal dialog, you'll need to subclass the dialog and do this code in an WM_INITINSTANCE handler after you call the base-class WM_INITINSTANCE handler.
