you may use CEdit::SetFont() for this purpose.

e.g.

CFont m_font; //make this global

//On Init
m_font.CreatePointFont(200, _T ("Nudi-10"));

pEditCtrl->SetFont (&m_font, TRUE); //set font for edit control

Better make it a member of your dialog class.

"Nudi-10" needs to be the name of an existing font. The name should be spelled exactly like you see it in the font combo box of the dialog resource properties.

>>>> m_font.CreatePointFont(200, _T ("Nudi-10"));

Note, the first argument is the required point size times 10. That means you create a 20 points font by the statement.

yeah right as said by itsmeandnobodyelse  'CreatePointFont' requires 'Font Face Name' which is full font name..

You may also use LOGFONT struct for this

CFont m_font;

LOGFONT lf;
ZeroMemory( &lf, sizoef( lf ) );
lstrcpy( lf.lfFaceName, _T("courier") ); // assign whatever font face name you want to

lf.lfHeight = 30;       // assign font height you may also assign font width with lf.lfWidth ( both in logical units )

font.CreateFontIndirect( &lf );

pEditCtrl->SetFont( &font );

NONCLIENTMETRICS ncm;
  ncm.cbSize=sizeof(NONCLIENTMETRICS);
  SystemParametersInfo(SPI_GETNONCLIENTMETRICS,0,&ncm,0);
    ncm.lfStatusFont.lfHeight=15;
  ncm.lfStatusFont.lfWeight=FW_NORMAL ;
  strcpy(ncm.lfStatusFont.lfFaceName,"Arail");
  Font.CreateFontIndirect(&ncm.lfStatusFont);    
edit1.SetFont(&Font,TRUE);
edit1 is memeber variable of editbox
