CreateFontIndirect info  Overview  Group

The CreateFontIndirect function creates a logical font that has the characteristics specified in the specified structure. The font can subsequently be selected as the current font for any device context.

HFONT CreateFontIndirect(

    CONST LOGFONT *lplf 

// pointer to logical font structure



Points to a LOGFONT structure that defines the characteristics of the logical font.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is a handle to a logical font.

If the function fails, the return value is NULL. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.


The CreateFontIndirect function creates a logical font with the characteristics specified in the LOGFONT structure. When this font is selected by using the SelectObject function, GDI’s font mapper attempts to match the logical font with an existing physical font. If it fails to find an exact match, it provides an alternative whose characteristics match as many of the requested characteristics as possible.

When you no longer need the font, call the DeleteObject function to delete it.
