How do I change my font and color of the text to be output to screen and to a file?

I can change those attributes and fwrite to a file, right?

The App Wizard I used is MFC with SDI and CEditView option. The rest are default.

Thx

you cannot save colour and font to a text file with CEditView .. it only handles ASCII text.

You can change the font and colour for the whole eidt box .. but that is not saved in a file

You want a CRichEditView - based app

Look at the Superpad app and other MFC samples

Thx.
I am trying not to use IE or netscape dll or lib.
Would CRichEdit use those dll?
I mean I would like something that is independent of IE and netscape. And also as few windows dll as possible.

RichEdit is part of Windows .. no need for IE etc.

Check out the examples that come with VC.

i mean:
after user keyed in the filename to open in the fileopen dialog, I want to take this file and open it in my application. After processing, I want to print char by char to the window screen. Bypass the CArchive, I think...
btw, I am not too sure how it works from the time user input the filename till the text is displayed on the SDI window.

Can you explain?
Thanks

This is not a MFC restirction .. it is a Win32 restriction.  Going to Win32 will probably not help.
