In BC++4.5, I used MDI in my application.
I want to convert a specific ID(integer) to handle type(hwnd) to use an API function such as InvalidateRegion.
In my application, many child windows are shown so I control one window in way of giving a specfic ID.
I think there exists a difference between integer type and hwnd type.. Right..?
 
How to do..?

Thanks..

MikeP is correct. You can use GetDlgItem() for any windows regardless of whether it is a dialog or not.

Dear Thui and MikeP:

GetDlgItem needs two parameters; handle of dialog box and ID.
So I don't know how to give the handle of dialog box(hDlg) because I used a child WINDOW.
Is this right.?

Anyway, I know there exists a API function(GetWindow()) when I search GetDlgItem at the help file..
I want to give above points to whom reply this message first..

Thanks for your assistance..

The GetDlgItem function retrieves the handle of a control in the specified dialog box.
HWND GetDlgItem(
    HWND hDlg,      // handle of dialog box
    int nIDDlgItem       // identifier of control
   );
