Hi Ashutosh,
I think that there must be something different between your code and
Dave's. I performed a test at my side and Dave's code worked fine. I would
like to post my code snippets here for your reference:
BOOL CMyEdit::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
    if(pMsg->message ==WM_KEYDOWN)
        if (GetKeyState(VK_CONTROL)<0
            && pMsg->wParam == _T('K')) {

                int nLen = GetWindowTextLength();
                return TRUE;
    return CEdit::PreTranslateMessage(pMsg);

Hope this helps. If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel
free to let us know. Have a nice day!

Best regards,
Charles Wang
