I've a CEdit control in a View derived from CFormView.
I've declared a variable m_edit, pointer to CEdit assigned in DoDataExchange.

I call the function m_edit.SetLimitText(LIMIT);
It doesn't works.

I've tried creating the control by myself and it was ok, but
I need to use the derived control instead of this.

Thanks

Try to use ((CEdit*)GetDlgItem(ID_EDIT_CONTROL))->SetTextLimit(LIMIT) in OnInitialUpdate() for example, where ID_EDIT_CONTROL - is ID of your edit control in dialog template

You can also set this value through the class-wizard, member variables page.

1) Make sure that you are doing a correct DDX_CONTROL in the DoDataExchange.

2) Remember that changing the text limit does not effect text that is already in the control, meaning, it will not truncate it.
