I am using the statement:
((CEditView*)m_viewList.GetHead())->SerializeRaw(ar);
in a simple text editor.  How do I call GetEditCtrl in CView, so that I can get at the data which comes into the edit control, and then operate on it with CString (Left, Mid, etc.)?.

I don't understand what is your problem.

You have a list of views (m_viewList). You retrieve views one by one from this list and type cast with (CEditView *), which should give you a pointer to the EditView if it is valid.

If the EditView is valid, you should be able to call GetEditCtrl() to get the edit control of the view. What is the problem here ?

CEdit& edit = ((CEditView*)m_viewList.GetHead())->GetEditCtrl();
CString str;
edit.GetWindowText(str);

I entered the code and it was fine.  My problem is I am learning MFC, and I am learning about C language pointers, typecasts, etc.

Thanks for your help, galkin.

I don't know how many points to assess the answer.  It was an easy one for an expert, but not at my level.
