I have a CExtListCtrl (ProfUIS 2.91) and want to change the header font.
I use the following code:

    CExtHeaderCtrl &HdrCtrl = List.GetHeaderCtrl();

It still just uses the standard font. A test application with a standard CListCtrl using the above code worked perfectly.

Do I need to do anything more to make it work with ProfUIS?

The customized header font is currently not supported. We can regard your message as a feature request. The only way to change the header font is to implement a CExtHeaderCtrl-derived class that implements the CExtHeaderCtrl::OnCalcHeaderItemSize(), CExtHeaderCtrl::OnCalcHeaderItemLayout() and CExtHeaderCtrl::OnPaintHeaderItem() virtual methods. This also requires a CExtListCtrl-derived class with the overriden CExtListCtrl::_OnQueryHeaderCtrl() virtual method which returns your improved header control.
