Hi, I want to enter text, in a text box placed on a dialog, in 2 different ways. I have place buttons on the dialog, like windows phone dialer. I want that if I enter values thru buttons, it should enter the text at the positin where the cursor is blinking. Manual entry is OK in text box but when I press buttons, that's the problem.
Waiting for help...

Call CEdit::SetSel to remove the current selection and call CEdit::ReplaceSel to insert the text.

CEdit::ReplaceSel
If there is no current selection, the replacement text is inserted at the current cursor location.

Use ClassWizard to add a member variable (m_edit) of type CEdit to associate the edit control.

In your button handler,

m_edit.SetSel(-1, 0);
m_edit.ReplaceSel(_T("insert"));
