How to use IDC_EDIT objects from dialog box

I have created a dialog box to pop up on the creation of a new document.  The box has IDC_EDIT objects to enter the names of the 2 players of the game.  How can I access the IDC_EDIT1 and IDC_EDIT2?  I want to perhaps convert them to strings for use with my program.

Thanks,

Use ClassWizard. Select your dialog class.

Click the member variables tab. Highlight each of the IDC_EDIT items and click "Add Variable". Add a variable of category "Value" and type "CString" with a name of your choosing.

Now, invoke your dialog with ...DoModal(). When DoModal() returns the variables will contain the data entered (if "OK" was clicked).

Note: DoModal returns IDOK if OK is clicked, or IDCANCEL if CANCEL was clicked. In the latter case the variables won't be set.
