madmorgan,

You have the correct syntax for GUICtrlSetFont when you change the size, why do you not use the correct syntax when changing the font itself?

From the Help file:

"GUICtrlSetFont (controlID, size [, weight [, attribute [, fontname[, quality]]]] )"

Hint: You need to set all the intervening parameters to Default. :D

madmorgen,

In response to your PM:

It does not matter what parameter you want to change - you MUST complete all the parameters in the GUICtrlSetFont up to the one you want to change. So if you want to change the font and nothing else, you do this:

GUICtrlSetFont(controlID, Default, Default, Default, fontname)

P.S. For anyone else reading - do NOT send PMs asking for help, it is considered rude here. :D
