How to change font for all static text?

Hello,
I would like to change the font for all my text (static-text).
In OnInitDialog I did this:

       CString strSchriftart1="Microsoft Sans Serif";
   
       CFont *fontPtr1 = new CFont();
      fontPtr1->CreateFont(
       12,
        0,
        0,
        0,
       FW_NORMAL,
        0,
        0,
        0,
       DEFAULT_CHARSET,
       OUT_CHARACTER_PRECIS,
       CLIP_CHARACTER_PRECIS,
       DEFAULT_QUALITY,
       DEFAULT_PITCH|FF_DONTCARE,
       strSchriftart1);
      

       CStatic *pStatic1 =(CStatic*) GetDlgItem(IDC_STATIC);
       pStatic1->SetFont(fontPtr1);


But this will only change one of my static text (ID=IDC_STATIC).
How can I do this.
Please help
500 points with a solution.
Thank you.
Best regards,
Thomas

Hi tsp2002,

attached you can find a function which does this - to use it just call
> SetAllStaticsFont( this, fontPtr1 );
instead of your code
> CStatic *pStatic1 =(CStatic*) GetDlgItem(IDC_STATIC);
> pStatic1->SetFont(fontPtr1);

Hope that helps,

ZOPPO
void SetAllStaticsFont( CDialog* pDlg, CFont* pFont )

{

	if ( NULL == pDlg || NULL == pFont )

	{

		ASSERT( 0 );



		return;

	}



	CWnd* pChild = pDlg->GetWindow( GW_CHILD );

	const int nMaxCount = 32;

	TCHAR pszWndClassName[ nMaxCount ];



	while ( NULL != pChild )

	{

		if ( ::GetClassName( pChild->m_hWnd, pszWndClassName, nMaxCount ) )

		{

			if ( _tcsicmp( pszWndClassName, _T( "STATIC" ) ) == 0 )

			{

				pChild->SetFont( pFont );

			}

		}



		pChild = pChild->GetWindow( GW_HWNDNEXT );

	}

}

Open in new window

uint statics[] = { IDC_STATIC, IDC_STATIC1, ... };
uint sz = sizeof(statics)/sizeof(uint);

CStatic *pStatic = NULL;
for (uint i=0; i<sz; i++)
{
    pStatic =(CStatic*) GetDlgItem(statics[i]);
    pStatic->SetFont(fontPtr1);
    pStatic->UpdateFont();
}

@WiB: This will only work if the IDs of all statics in the dialog are manually modifies since the resource editor automatically sets the IDs of all static-controls to 'IDC_STATIC' ...

no problem, WiB, in general your suggestion was ok despite exactly the fact that static controls are handled differentyl by the resource editor than any other controls where the IDs have to be unique. But, even in the case this should be done i.e. for edit controls it's better to have a dynamic functionality like mine to avoid the function has to be maintained with any resource change.

A nice day to you too ...
