Change font in a CListBox!

I have a ListBox ,with a control called m_CdList, on a PropertySheet and I would like to change the font face and size in that ListBox. I would like the code since I have tried different ways without success.

Do you try m_CdList.SetFont()?
void CDialogWithListBox::OnInitDialog()
   // create a font for the CList
   LOGFONT lf;
   ZeroMemory(&lf, sizeof(lf));
   lf.lfHeight = 10;    // use desired size
   lstrcpy(lf.lfFaceName, "MS Sans Serif"); // use desired name
   m_hFont = CreateFontIndirect(&lf);
   // access the control, send the WM_SETFONT message
   CListBox *list = (CListBox *)GetDlgItem(ID_LIST_BOX);
   list.SendMessage(WM_SETFONT, (WPARAM)m_hFont, TRUE);

Note: there are cleaner ways of doing this now but this works for the widest variety of MFC platforms/revisions.
