I have been given a Name, Lastname, hour worked, Pay rate, and Total Pay for the static text. and when I hit the Calculate the total pay button, I should be able to calculate the certain amount of money in the Total pay edit box.
For example,
First Name: Mr. A
Last Name: BBB
Hours Worked: 10
Pay rate: 4.45
Total Pay: .....

and when I hit the Calculate button, I should be able to get the amount that Mr. A receive.

Thanks

Are you using Visual C++ and MFC?
In that case; this is NOT hard!
Do you just have the payment data in the three static controls?
In that case:

1. Open your dialog and assign new names to the static controls. These are now called "IDC_STATIC" . Rename them to "IDC_HOURS" and  "IDC_PAYRATE" for instance. Also rename the edit box to "IDC_TOTALPAY".
2. Assign member variables to "IDC_HOURS",  "IDC_PAYRATE" and "IDC_TOTALPAY" using the classwizard. Use "add variable..." set names to m_sHours (IDC_HOURS), m_sPayrate (IDC_PAYRATE) and m_sTotalPay(IDC_TOTALPAY). Make sure category is "Value" and variable type is "CString".
3. Use the classwizard to connect the button to your code like this: Select your button in the "Object IDs"-list on the "Message Maps"-tab. Doubleclick the massage "BN_CLICKED". Set member function name to "OnCalcTotal". Press ok and then "Edit Code". Then enter:
    UpdateData(TRUE); // get data from controls
    m_sTotalPay.Format("%.2f", atof(m_sPayrate)*atof(m_sHours)); // calc&make string
    UpdateData(FALSE); // send data to controls

Build and run...
DONE!
