Sends the WM_SETFONT message to the window to use the specified font.

void SetFont(
   CFont* pFont,
   BOOL bRedraw = TRUE 


Pointer to a CFont object.


TRUE for the window to redraw immediately after it processes the WM_SETFONT message; otherwise FALSE.

This method has no effect unless the window processes the WM_SETFONT message. Many MFC classes that derive from CWnd process this message because they are attached to a predefined window class that includes a message handler for the WM_SETFONT message. To use this method, classes that you derive from CWnd must define a method handler for the WM_SETFONT message.
