Hi,
I am trying to change the font size in the Header of the a CListCtrl control.
I did as in the attached code but it did not work.
The font just became like a SYSTEM font.

CHeaderCtrl *header=list.GetHeaderCtrl( );
 HWND hwnd=header->GetSafeHwnd();
	HDC  hDC=::GetDC(hwnd);
	
	CFont font;
	LOGFONT lf;
	memset(&lf, 0, sizeof(LOGFONT));        zero out structure
	lf.lfHeight = 6;                       request a 12-pixel-height font
	strcpy(lf.lfFaceName, "Arial Narrow");         request a face name "Arial"
	VERIFY(font.CreateFontIndirect(&lf));   create the font
	
	header->SetFont( &font); 
	
	::SelectObject( hDC, (HFONT) font);
	::ReleaseDC(hwnd,hDC);

CHeaderCtrl *header=list.GetHeaderCtrl( );
 HWND hwnd=header->GetSafeHwnd();
        HDC  hDC=::GetDC(hwnd);
       
        CFont font;                <<<---------------------------------------------------------- LOCAL
        LOGFONT lf;
        memset(&lf, 0, sizeof(LOGFONT));        zero out structure
        lf.lfHeight = 6;                       request a 12-pixel-height font
        strcpy(lf.lfFaceName, "Arial Narrow");         request a face name "Arial"
        VERIFY(font.CreateFontIndirect(&lf));   create the font
       
        header->SetFont( &font);
       
        ::SelectObject( hDC, (HFONT) font);
        ::ReleaseDC(hwnd,hDC);

You create a font local to the function, attach to the header then when the function exits the font is DESTROYED.
Solution - the CFont must be declared at the class scope (in the .h file)
