Why this abnormal behaviour?

Hi MFC gurus,

I have a CFormview with 5 edit controls. I want to set the font of these edit controls with a font selected from a CFontDialog. For this I used SetFont method of CWnd. Font is getting changed but if I bring my focus to any of the edit control back, the font changes back to system font. Why this abnormal behaviour?

It sounds like your font is being destroyed somehow. Make sure the font object you're using is not created on the stack. The easiest way to create a font you need for the dialog, is to create a font data member in your dialog class. In the constructor for the dialog, create the font. Then in the OnInitDialog, set the font for the edit controls.
