I have an SDI app a with CFormView. The CFormView has
multiple edit controls on it. What is the best way to

There are one case I'm concerned about:
1. The user has selected save or exit from the top menu.
I have tried handling the kill focus message for the
control but if you have make changes to the edit box and
have not exited it before doing a File | Save the kill
focus message is not send and I don't save the data.
I don't really want to update on every keystroke in the
edit control since I only care ...How to change the CEdit's caret?
I have an edit control for which I can change its font depending on a
checkbox status. How can I change the caret back and forth depending on which
font is set in the CEdit control?
I appreciate any help.
I don't think this is possible for a CEdit. If I were trying it, I'd subclass the CEdit
and override the OnSetFocus/OnKillFocus, and do caret manipulations there, but at this
point you're trying to deal with fooling the CEdit into doing what you want, and that is
likely to be unsuccessful.

I would like to change the appereance of CEdit's buttons. Ideally, I would
like to replace them with my own buttons (derived from CBitmapButton). I
know all about the limitations of CEdit in terms of attempting to change the

like to know if anyone here has any experience with that and if this
scenario is even supported by CEdit. Furthermore, I would also like to draw

Hi! This is probably a stupid, question, but: When creating a dialog with a
multiline text edit field, I am unable to make the field insert the tab
character when I press the tab key, it only selects all text. Or rather, it
wants to go to the next control, but as the edit field is the only
control... well, you know what I mean. This should be a normal text-file
editor. What to do about this?

Can I use WS_EX_LAYERED style to child (CEdit) controls?
Or should I use GDI+ library feature
(Gdiplus::SolidBrush(Gdiplus::Color()). At present both ways are not
working for me.
Since the edit control is drawn with GDI, invoking a GDI+ mechanism is not going to be
terribly successful. While you might consider subclassing the edit control and returning

Thanks in advance.
If your using the Dialog Editor, not creating the controls dynamically, the
easiest way would be to set the number flag in the properties for the field
you want to be numeric only. You get the other controls by selecting them
from the control toolbar in the dialog editor as well. If you are creating
them dynamically, you would use CListBox, CComboBox, CStatic, CButton,
When I make CEdit class Read Only, the background turns grey. How can I make

While going through one of my projects and applying variable names to
some of the controls I generally found that doing so for controls like
buttons usually defaulted to a control type of CButton or such. But
with CEdits it would default to a value type of CString. Is this some
sort of shortcut to accessing the text within a CEdit control rather
than having to extract the text before using it? Or is this some sort
of behavior of the compiling environment that I just need to accept?
The default *control* for it is CEdit, CString is the default variable type,
which is added ...CEdit and \n

I created a new class CMyEdit that inherits from CEdit. Then I defined an
edit control in my dialog to this type. So basically the only thing I changed
is using the class CMyEdit instead of CEdit for the edit control.
The problem is that when I run the program, I can't copy/paste anymore in
the edit control using the keyboard (Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V). I have to do it only
with the mouse.
Note that CMyEdit does not define any new function or override or overload
any function from CEdit. I have just created it with the Add Class Wizard and

Maybe they could just paste into the formula bar.

On a CEdit new data is attached. I want to see the new data, therefore the
scroll position in this CEdit should remain on the bottom. How can I solve
this without scrolling to bottom whenever the content of CEdit has changed
(this slows down my app and is really unsightly?
I believe you can call LineScroll() to do this:
However if you are only putting lines into the control (like a status line
or something) you may want to consider using a CListBox or CListCtrl instead
since it's easier to add and replace lines.
