Quote:You then say, "A right click on the edit box produced a drop down and "Add variable" was selected.". That part I don't understand, an edit box is just that, a box that you type text into which allows simple editing.
My understanding was that to get the value from a control a variable had to be attached to the control. A right click on that control solicits a dialog to add said variable. This method works when I want to get the state of a check box.
However, Now it is clear that this method does not work with the edit control. Following your template, heck, the exact code you wrote, I am able to get the value entered.
I need to take care when examining the results. A zero return value is legitimate only when status is also TRUE. If status is FALSE, then the returned integer is to be regarded as invalid.
OK, I will work with that.
I thank you for the time you spent explaining this.
Edit: Now I realize, or think I do, that my code was trying to reach inside that edit box, which is really a window itself, and try to find another control with that ID of IDC_EDIT1.
Thank you for your time
