Re: edit control problem

Have you considered using the default edit control functionality and have
the initial value highlighted so when the user types "over" it the data is
replaced. Also, since it looks like this edit control is not valid until a
file is selected why not disable it with EnableWindow(false) until you
detect that they have selected a valid file. That would keep people from
entering text there (or elsewhere) until the appropriate time.

If I use OnEnChangeEditData and popup a messagebox, it works okay, but
when I also try to clear the datat that was entered in the editbox, I get
endless messageboxes. How do I prevent this and why does this happen?


void CTravelerView::OnEnChangeEditData()


// TODO: If this is a RICHEDIT control, the control will not

// send this notification unless you override the

// function and call CRichEditCtrl().SetEventMask()

// with the ENM_CHANGE flag ORed into the mask.

// TODO: Add your control notification handler code here

MessageBox("The File to be printed has not been selected,\n Select a file
first!", "File Not Selected", MB_ICONSTOP | MB_OK);
