I am programming in VC++ 1.52 for Win3.11.  I am using a number of edit boxes in my tax application.  These edit boxes are for users to enter numeric data.  I would like these edit boxes to be right justified.  I looked at the styles for the control, but the only way to choose right justify is if you are using a Multi-Line Edit box.  I am not.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

You can create a multiline textbox, and just prevent the user from pressing Enter - via the WM_CHAR message. By the way, there is a separate style if you wan't the textbox be numeric only.
