I'm just curious about why you need antialiasing.

why do you think, so text doesn't look like crap. From my experience MFC doesn't do that, unless you make your own font class, that sort of thing is no fun. Depending on the situation you can load DIBs or BMPs (onto a button or directly to the sreen)  which you create with the appropriate anti-aliased text. You can use transparent images or simply keep the background of the image the same as your apps background. There are several methods for different situations, depending on where you want this text. If you are interested let me know where you are trying to put this text.

Livepix,

You need to set the lfQuality member of the LOGFONT structure used to write text to ANTIALIASED_QUALITY. In addition, you need to make sure the OS you are running under (95 or NT) has font smoothing installed. In NT 4.0, this feature is a part of the OS. However, in 95 you will need to install it from the Microsoft web site (http://www.microsoft.com/opentype/free.htm). I believe that it also comes with MS Plus (for 95).
