I have a dialogBox in which i want to change the font size and color of on
Edit Box (CEdit) suppose IDC_EDIT1. I don't know how to put all this stuff
together to obtain what I want.. Can you give me some clue.

OK. Let's assume you are writing a MFC application and the class for the
dialog containing the edit control you want to set font and text color of is
called CMyDialog. Using Class Wizard add handlers for WM_INITDIALOG and
WM_CTLCOLOR messages as follows:

BOOL CMyDialog::OnInitDialog()
{
CDialog::OnInitDialog();

CFont fnt;
fnt.CreateFont(14, 0, 0, 0, FW_NORMAL, FALSE, FALSE, FALSE,
ANSI_CHARSET, OUT_DEFAULT_PRECIS, CLIP_DEFAULT_PRECIS, DEFAULT_QUALITY,
DEFAULT_PITCH, "Comic Sans MS");
GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1)->SetFont(&fnt);
fnt.Detach();

return TRUE;
}

HBRUSH CMyDialog::OnCtlColor(CDC* pDC, CWnd* pWnd, UINT nCtlColor)
{
HBRUSH hbr = CDialog::OnCtlColor(pDC, pWnd, nCtlColor);

if (nCtlColor == CTLCOLOR_EDIT && pWnd->GetDlgCtrlID() == IDC_EDIT1)
pDC->SetTextColor(RGB(128, 0, 128));

return hbr;
}

Hope this makes more sense.
