Changing fonts in listbox & edit controls

I am using MFC to handle a ListBox and an Edit control in my application. When I try to change the font in these controls to "Courier New" the font does not change. Can anyone give me some insight into what may be going on?

all I need to do is set the font to a fixed width font
You're setting the font and then destroying it in the CFont destructor. You need to keep the font around for the lifetime of the box.
