Changing text size in Carbon dialogs...ictb? - Mac Programming

Sorry to bug the list again, but I've been searching on Apple's site for the past hour or so to try to figure this out. I want to display some text in a different font or size. I don't want the whole dialog to show up in one font, or one size, just certain items. It used to be possible to do this in Resorcerer under Classic, but the ictb resource doesn't seem to be recognized. Is there any way to do this under Carbon? Thanks, Mike Hunson...

    Default Changing text size in Carbon dialogs...ictb?

    Sorry to bug the list again, but I've been searching on Apple's site for the
    past hour or so to try to figure this out.

    I want to display some text in a different font or size. I don't want the
    whole dialog to show up in one font, or one size, just certain items.

    It used to be possible to do this in Resorcerer under Classic, but the ictb
    resource doesn't seem to be recognized.

    Is there any way to do this under Carbon?

    With Appearance (MacOS 8.x+) you could use a 'dftb' resource to do
    that. Have you tried one of those?

    Some items on MacOS X don't support any other fonts, to preserve a
    consistent look (yeah, I know how that sounds in the face of "metal"
    windows). However, you can try SetControlData(), for which some controls
    support a control data property that allows changing the font.
