I would like to get the AUTOCHECKBOX Button to perform one task when Checked and yet another when Unchecked.

The following peice of my program writes "on" to a result window when it is clicked on. I would like for it to write "off" to the same result window when it is clicked off.

I would appreciate any help.

Thanks
Randy

BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP( CWindow, CFrameWnd )
      ON_BN_CLICKED(IDC_BUTTON2, HandleButton2)      

END_MESSAGE_MAP()

// Handle the r_cont button
void CWindow::HandleButton2()
{
         char x_dir[ ] = "on";
        SetDlgItemText(IDC_RESULT5,x_dir);
}

In your function , you can use the ::SendMessage as follows :

int x = ::SendMessage(hWndControl,BM_GETCHECK,0,0);
if (x == 0)
{ // NOT checked code }
else
{ // Checked Code }


You must provide the handle of the control , and I do not know how MFC does it , OWL uses the HWindow member for the parent window , so you can use ::GetDlgItem(HWindow,Item_Id);
