HI,

I am writting an application with visual c++.  I am not looking to do any adjusting of the fonts/and don't give the user options to change fonts.  All I would like is for the fonts to be consistant througth out the program.  

I didn't change anything concerning fonts anywhere in my applications, but different windows/dialog boxes will show different fonts.  When printed all the same fonts are used.  Is there a reason for this?

Thanks for the reply,

I am writing a database application using ODBC.  I am running into the different fonts problem when two different dialog boxes are opened.

I have lots of dialog boxes -- some have the saem fonts some do not

I don't do anything (right now) with fonts at all -- thinking the default should/would be sufficient

How do you create these dialogs? In the resource editor, or on the fly?

If you use the resource editor, you can select the whole dialog and right-click, select Properties, go to the "Styles" tab (second tab) and check the fonts for all your dialogs. Are they the same (and the same size)?
