How to change the default menu font
Posted on 1998-05-11
I have an MFC app that uses a CFormView. The user needs to be able to see the menus from far away (I just write the app, I don't design them). So doing some prototyping in CBuilder they agreed upon using the standard system font for the menus, only bold. The only way I've seen to draw a menu is to override the DrawItem method in a CMenu object. Since the menu is a resource in my app I don't have a CMenu object to work with. How do I get the font changed for all menu items in my app? (or how do I derive a menu and attach it if that's the only way to change the menu font).
