I am new to MFC and I am using ClassWizard to make an application.  I know how to receive text from a CEdit
object using SetSel, and then GetLine when I am creating and destroying everything myself.  But, when I use classWizard, I am not sure how to get a pointer to the two CEdit boxes that are in my application.
Thanks very much for your time.

You can write code to get window pointers using class wizard. You can use function the
GetDlgItem(int idofControl) function to obtain the pointer though. In most cases, you have
to cast the return value to something more useful.

Refer to documentation on GetDlgItem function for more info.

Please make it specific where u have Edit boxes?? Did u create them? or are they in a dialog??
If they are in a dialog, use CEdit* pEdit = (CEdit*)GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1) ;
provided IDC_EDIT1 is the id of u'r edit box....

Yes, after casting it to a CEdit, I had no problem getting the data from the CEdit box.  Thanks very much.  I really appreciate your help.  Sorry it took me so long to get back, I had to try it out first and make sure that I could figure out what was going on.
Thanks again.
