I am trying to load an edit control of the main window of my program. I am using Win32 API and BC++ 5.01.
I can get it to load but not display what I type in. When I type, the whole box flickers. I AM loading a PCX too and I wanted the edit control to be in a box I made on the PCX... what should I do? Is the PCX covering the edit control?

If the PCX is on top of the edit control, it is probably being repainted each time you interact with the edit control.  If the PCX has an 'area' on it that you want to use for text entry, you will need to clip that area when you repaint the PCX on the screen.
