In order to obtain font dialog below code
CFontDialog dlg;
//GetCurrentFont() for font
//Getcolor() gets color choosed by user
//SetFont() can be used to setting the font
so here my question is which function can be used to set the color to the text which is opted by the user.

Take a look at the article Using colors in CEdit and CStatic[^], it would seem to be what you need.

You could do something like this to set the fonts:

memset(&lf, 0, sizeof(LOGFONT));
lf.lfHeight = 16;
_tcsncpy_s(lf.lfFaceName, LF_FACESIZE, _T("Arial"), 7);
HFONT hFont = ::CreateFontIndirect(&lf);
CFont* pfont = CFont::FromHandle(hFont);

You can also override the OnCtlColor function...
