Thr primary purpose of the WORDPAD sample is to show how to use the Rich Edit control in a view. For me it was essential in learning the differences between a doc/view based on the edit control vs. the rcih edit control.
The following can be found in the online help:
   TN060: The New Windows Common Controls
   CRichEditView, CRichEditDoc MFC class references

On the chance your new to MFC, do the Scribble tutorial available in online help. This will give you a start on understanding doc/view. Also read the overview on programming with the MFC in on line help.

For outside books try "Inside Visual C++", Kruglinski, Microsoft Press. He has a secion on the rich edit control.

Hi~

I oftenly reference WORDPAD sample program for testing
a function and structure espetially, CRichEditCtrl and
CRichEditView class.

CRichEditCtrl and CRichEditView is major class in it.

I think there is no book or source that tell whole
solution that you want to know.

I always reference MFC reference and insert debugging
code that I make. For example,

#ifdef CSOME_CLASS_DEBUG
    TRACE("CSomeClass::function() : %d", function_value);
#endif

To check the event and value is good method about learning
MFC function and Window program.

If you send me a mail, I tell my own debugging tips!!
