CRichEditCtrl::SetSelectionCharFormat

Sets the character formatting attributes for the text in the current selection in this CRichEditCtrl object.

BOOL SetSelectionCharFormat( 
   CHARFORMAT& cf  
); 
BOOL SetSelectionCharFormat( 
   CHARFORMAT2& cf  
);

cf

In the first version, a pointer to a CHARFORMAT structure containing the new character formatting attributes for the current selection.

In the second version, a pointer to a CHARFORMAT2 structure, which is a Rich Edit 2.0 extension to the CHARFORMAT structure, containing the new character formatting attributes for the current selection.

Nonzero if successful; otherwise, 0.

Only the attributes specified by the dwMask member of cf are changed by this function.

For more information, see the EM_SETCHARFORMAT and the CHARFORMAT and CHARFORMAT2 structures in the Windows SDK.

CHARFORMAT cf;

// Modify the selection format so that the selected text is  
// displayed in bold and not striked out.
cf.cbSize = sizeof(cf);
cf.dwMask = CFM_STRIKEOUT|CFM_BOLD;
cf.dwEffects = CFE_BOLD;
m_myRichEditCtrl.SetSelectionCharFormat(cf);

// Verify the settings are what is expected.
m_myRichEditCtrl.GetSelectionCharFormat(cf);
ASSERT((cf.dwMask&(CFM_STRIKEOUT|CFM_BOLD)) == 
   (CFM_STRIKEOUT|CFM_BOLD));
ASSERT((cf.dwEffects&(CFE_STRIKEOUT|CFE_BOLD)) == CFE_BOLD);
