I just forgot how to change the width of a CEdit on a dialog.
Would somebody help me?
If you mean changing it dynamically, you can use SetWindowPos on the control
after subclassing it. The easier way is to do it in resource editor(just
drag the corners to desired size).

My system is running XP home edition, with Office 2000 on it. Ever since

Are you using any software that integrates with Outlook like WinFax or
synchronisation software? These programs will keep Outlook open untill they
are closed themself.

My application draws a series of bitmaps on the dialog box one after

from a file and draw each one subsequently in a specified region of

I'm not sure this is what you have in mind - but you have nothing to loose.
If you can produce what you have in mind within a worksheets cell [by using
some rare font or so] try this:
1) Declare an Axis Title by typing Bla Bla.
2) Type whatever you need into cell F10 and make sure to display it as needed.
3) Click on the Axis Title and while it is selected click in the Formula Bar

Unfortunately you can not control the width or height of chart text
elements such as Title, Axis titles and datalabels.
You could insert a textbox into the chart if you really need to control
the size. Simply select the chart and then begining typing the chart
title when you press enter it should automatically create a textbox
embedded in the chart.

I�am trying to paint some stuff in the background of a CEdit-control.
Therefore I set the background mode to transparent in CEdit::CtlColor and

repainted properly now when I delete the text in the control for instance. I

Then add the music background to the presentation separately using Insert |

You can use the Document Explorer window, which you'll find under the View
