Font problem

I have created a new font (called "myfont"), and I am trying to display it in an owner-draw button (I can see my font properly in the "Unicode character map").
I try to display this font in my button:
void CMyButton::DrawItem(LPDRAWITEMSTRUCT lpDrawItemStruct)
     CDC* pDC = CDC::FromHandle(lpDrawItemStruct->hDC);
     CFont aFont;
     LOGFONT lf;
     memset(&lf, 0, sizeof(LOGFONT));
     _tcscpy(lf.lfFaceName, _T("MyFont"));
     lf.lfHeight = 12;
     BOOL aRes = aFont.CreateFontIndirect(&lf);
     CFont* pOldFont = pDC->SelectObject(&aFont);
     CString aStr = _T("      ");
My problem is that I see 3 squares instead of the fonts characters.
BTW, In the "unicode character map" I see the characters correctly.

Can anyone help ?

change LOGFONT's lfCharSet to different types.

May be your charset is SYMBOL_CHARSET
