Setting pushbutton caption

I'm pretty new to MFC, and I have the following problem:

I simply want to change the the caption of a pushbutton so that when the user clicks it, the text changes from "Start" to "Stop"or vice versa. I don't want to use bitmaps, and I don't want to create two buttons and show/hide them - I would like to learn how to programatically change the text of just one button.

In an MFC created dialog-based app called MyTest, with classes MyTest and MyTestDlg, and a pushbutton called  ID_START_STOP, how do I implement this feature ?

Thanks a lot,

Boedeker

The following lines must be placed in your CDialog object
(perhaps in the OnStartStop handler function):

CString newCaption;
// set newCaption to the desired text
GetDlgItem(ID_START_STOP)->SetWindowText(newCaption);

I would suggest that you re-open this question with 50 points - 100 points are really much for
this question :) :) :)
