I need to update the values on an edit box whenever the user finishes editing, which means that the cursor should be at another position. So how am I to be notified about it so as to update the values.

Derive your own edit box class from CEdit and override the message handler OnKillFocus(). In the dialog box's OnInitDialog(), call SubclassDlgItem() to subclass the edit box.

A better (easier) way would be to handle the EN_KILLFOCUS notification that the edit control sends to its parent. The notification is sendt via the WM_COMMAND message:

EN_KILLFOCUS
idEditCtrl = (int) LOWORD(wParam); // identifier of edit control
wNotifyCode = HIWORD(wParam);      // notification code
hwndEditCtrl = (HWND) lParam;      // handle of edit control


This way you dont have to do any subclassing.
