    problem changing fonts

    I'm having a bit of trouble setting up the font for the text in my app.

    It renders the text just fine, but it only seems to display in a default font. The changes I make in CreateFont don't seem to be reflected inside the app.

    Here are the excerpts I use to create and render the font.

    I stepped through the font creation and it seems to be executing fine, but I can comment out the CreateFont and SelectObject lines and it will still render as seen in the below linked screen capture. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Here is a Screenshot of how it displays currently.

    Code :
    void Interface::SetupFont(HDC &g_HDC)
    	*basefont = glGenLists(256);
    	*hfont = CreateFont(24,0,0,0,FW_BOLD,false, false, false, ANSI_CHARSET, OUT_TT_PRECIS, CLIP_DEFAULT_PRECIS, ANTIALIASED_QUALITY, DEFAULT_PITCH, "Times New Roman");
    	if (*hfont)
    		SelectObject(g_HDC, hfont);
    		wglUseFontBitmaps(g_HDC, 32, 96, *basefont);
    void Interface::WriteFPS()
    	glColor4f(1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f);
    	glTranslatef(0.0f, 0.0f, -1.0f);
    	glRasterPos2f(0.2, 0.486f);
    	glListBase(*basefont - 32);
    		glCallLists(strlen(realTime_->getStrFrameRate()), GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, realTime_->getStrFrameRate());

    For reference in case it matters I'm using Dev. Studio 2005 and Vista 64 bit.
