Re: How to stop highlighting items in Cedit control
I have tried this, but since the control is in a CPropertyPage, VS tells me:
// TODO: If this is a RICHEDIT control, the control will not
// send this notification unless you override the
// function to send the EM_SETEVENTMASK message to the control
// with the ENM_UPDATE flag ORed into the lParam mask.
My next step was to insert the following code in the class dervived from
CEdit *pEdit = (CEdit *)GetDlgItem(IDC_DEPLOYSTATUS);
HWND handle = pEdit->m_hWnd;
int eventMask = ::SendMessage(handle, EM_SETEVENTMASK, 0, ENM_UPDATE);
// TODO: Add extra initialization here
return TRUE; // return TRUE unless you set the focus to a control
// EXCEPTION: OCX Property Pages should return FALSE
This method was entered and seemed to work. However the OnUpdate for the
Cedit control was not called so I could not call SetSel(-1,0);
I haven't been able to find any code that shows how it should be done so I
am at a loss as to what my problem is. Any suggestions??

Call SetSel(-1,0) for the edit control to deselect the text. You can do
this in an update routine.

I am using a Cedit control within a propertypage to display a list of
status messages as the program executes a series of actions. Everything
works OK, except that all of the text in the Cedit control is highlighted
(selected?). Is there a way to insert data into the Cedit control without
having the text highlighted?
