> Kulwant,
> When you set a font name/size in a form or report control, VFP uses that font. Where VFP uses the Windows font is in the Menu and I don't really recommend that you play with this. I used to pride myself on my eyesight (note the past tense.) Now, my eyes are not what they used to be. If I set my Windows appearance to a larger font, I want that larger font to be carried through to the VFP menu. Be very careful when you start playing with the user's Windows settings.

Mike Sir,
Adding the font to Windows worked.

Ken Murphy Sir,
For all my future efforts I shall keep your advice in mind.

Actually in the application I was working with,I have added "Forms", Used comboboxes, Textboxes etc but 95% of it is still FPW. I wish to thank and congratulate the FOX TEAM at Microsoft, (for the time and effort put in to keep Fox Backward compatible) the FPW application runs flawlessly in VFP6.

By the time my experience with VFP grows and I have enough money in my
pocket to buy VFP9, I'll start building all my new applications in pure VFP, (from scratch)

Thanks again,
