Font dialog with custom text preview '& color

The MFC CFontDialog class encapulates the standard Font common dialog box. This dialog allows you to select a font. It display a sample window showing some text in the required font. It is nice to be able to specify your own sample text - for example, if I am editing a text object in a drawing package, I would want to see the actual text in the sample box.

However, the MFC implmentation does not let you easily specify the sample text.

The following class, derived from CFontDialog, lets you do just this. It also lets you set and get the color selected in the dialog. Simple create a CMyFontDialog and specify the sample text in the constructor (or call SetSampleText() before calling DoModal()). Also call SetTextColor() before calling DoModal(), and retrieve the selected color afterwards with TextColor().
