Hello all!!

I have an SDI application, by default it should adopt 80x24 (width is 80 characters and 24 characters is height respectively need to occupy). If font size increases also it should adopt the same 80x24 characters only. means window size has to increase accordingly.

Here i'm using mono spaced font.

please send sample application or any related link.

thanks and regards sam.

Why did you edit your question? Do you want to prevent others from learning? That deserves a downvote.

I performed a rollback to the original version because there are solutions.

You could use CDC::DrawText with the DT_CALCRECT flag to compute the size (rect) of a string containing 80 charaters; use the result and compute the size of your "work area" and add a small padding buffer around it and add the width and height of the frame window (including the title bar, status bar, ... )

And use the result when creating the mainframe.

When the font size changes you just need to recalculate the width and height of your window based on the new TextMetric[^] values.
