ws_ex_right in a text box (VC++ program)
Posted on 1998-11-10
I am writing a program in VC++ that contains a text box. I wish to visually differentiate data entry in the box from data display by having data entry left justified and data display right justified.
I have tried to use the ModifyStyleEx() function with the WS_EX_LEFT and WS_EX_RIGHT values but all I get is a success status returned - the text is unaltered.
1) Is there something else I need to do?
2) Is there a better way to achieve this effect?
