If you have a pointer to the edit control, call 'GetFont()', e.g.

CEdit* pEdit = ...;

CFont* pFont = pEdit->GetFont();

Well, this is the MFC area... ;o)

But, using Win32, that would be

HFONT hFont = (HFONT) SendMessage(hEditCtrl,WM_GETFONT,0,0);

As the docs state:

WM_GETFONT
An application sends a WM_GETFONT message to a control to retrieve the font with which the control is currently drawing its text.

WM_GETFONT
wParam = 0; // not used, must be zero
lParam = 0; // not used, must be zero
 
Parameters
This message has no parameters.

Return Values
The return value is a handle to the font used by the control, or NULL if the control is using the system font.
