CEdit question

I feel stupid to ask this, but I am a beginner at C++ ;-) (Visual C++ 5)

What is the best way to write a Double type value into an CEdit box?
Do I have to convert it to CString and if: How do I do that best?

I have created a member variable called m_CEdit1_double which I use to read the value of the Edit box, can I use this to write a double  value to this Edit box? m_CEdit1_double = 1.645 gives no result.

Please don't laugh at me.. ;-) The beginning with Visual Basic was just as hard for me, but I made it!

You'll need to translate the double into a string and then equate the string to your edit box. Answer comming.

I'm anticipating your conversion-answer.

By the way, tell me about MY solution I have found in the meantime. What does an expert say to this:?

CString CTemperatur2Dlg::str(double zahl, int nachkomma)
{
      CString a;
      int s,d;

      a = _fcvt(zahl,nachkomma,&d,&s);
      a=a.Left(d) + '.' + a.Right(nachkomma);
      a=(!d)? '0' + a:a;
      a=(s)? '-' + a:a;
      
      return(a);
}

RolandKoehrsen,

Add a CString member variable to your CEdit box. In the procedure you want to update CEdit1, add a char buffer and use sprintf () to convert the double. I used the following.

char buffer[20];
sprintf (buffer, "%f", m_CEdit1_double);

Following, add the converted string to your CString member variable like below:

m_CEdit1_string = buffer; // where m_CEdit1_string is a CString

MFC should take care of actually adding the text to the CEdit box if your program is simple and you haven't over-ridden the CEdit functions.

Good Luck!

Obviously this didn't work.
Changing the member variable doesn't affect on the Edit-box text.

I went over using my own conversion routine and using the SetWindowText function to write the string into the EditBox.

Roland.
