InputBox ??

Is there a counterpart to the MessageBox function in C++, something that acts like an InputBox.

There is no such a standard dialog, though Visual Basic adds one, but it is still not available in Win32 SDK. The good news is that it's fairly easy to create that kind of dialog yourself and put it in a dll for instance...

simple answer.. nope :) it would be INCREDIBLY simple to write your own class to do this.. you wouldn't even need a dialog template.. you could create the dialog, static text, and edit control dynamically and call it like this:

CInputBox input("What is your name?");
answer = input.DoModal();

Actually, DoModal() can be placed in your constructor so all you would have to do is call the first line..

the reason why there's not really anything like this is because there ARE  few set backs to that situation.. think about all the style bits that are involved with an edit box..  if there were a general function to do this, it would require SEVERAL parameters in order for you to get the input box you want..

hope this helps
