Is there no text for CProgressCtrl?

Some documents tell us text of CProgressCtrl.
In the on-line Help, I saw it.
In default processing message, there are WM_GETFONT and WM_SETFONT.
In class library reference, too.
In the first, there is a text below.
"...display, if any, the text..."

How can I display, if any, the text?

Please give me help!

A windows common control progress bar does not display any text.

GetFont and setfont are message that all windows may receive, so the progress bar has to do something sensible with them (BTW: MFC class library doesn't have getfont and setfont).

If you want text on a progress bar, you'll have to draw it yourself by either owner-drawing the progress bar (have to do all the work yourself) or drawing the text over the progress bar (probably in xor mode).

Of course, I can't display any text.

But On Help, There is a title "Default progress bar message processing".
In other section there is a "Default ... message processing".
Slider control has no WM_GETFONT and WM_SETFONT.

So I think I can display text on "blue block".
Thank for your answer!

That appears to be a documentation error.

The progress control will process these messages (otherwise you'd have to), and if you owner draw the control and try to output text, then I would say that the font you set with WM_SETFONT would be the one that would be used.

But if you let the control draw itself, then you won't get any text.
