Pretty basic question but I just started learning a few days ago and I don't have a book or any source of help besides the .hlp files vc++ 5.0 came with, so be nice :)  Ok, I created and added an item my tree control, but not how can I use SetItem() to change the font of the item to bold?  For example, I have this:

HTREEITEM a = m_tree.InsertItem(title, TVI_ROOT, TVI_LAST);

with m_tree and titled taken care of.  Now, if I want to turn that item bold I do something along the lines of this (help me - fill in the ?s and make any needed corrections please =), oh and btw, I dont have images on the tree):

m_tree.SetItem(a, TVIF_STATE, title, 0?, 0?, TVIS_BOLD?, TVIS_BOLD?, ?)

I would really appreciate help with this.  Thanks alot,

-Chris

Dear core123,

I also faced the same problem , here r some clue.

1)
what u can do is - get the window handle of your control in your intiDialog or OnInitialUpdate & then u can send following message

An application sends a WM_SETFONT message to specify the font that a control is to use when drawing text.

WM_SETFONT
wParam = (WPARAM) hfont;            // handle of font
lParam = MAKELPARAM(fRedraw, 0);    // redraw flag

2) with control window handle invoke this function

CWnd::SetFont

void SetFont( CFont* pFont, BOOL bRedraw = TRUE );

All the best
