Hi all, specifically Nietod and Alexo...

I placed this in the Init part of my dialog based MFC and I am getting all sorts of errors... how do I get this create function to work?

CEdit* editCtrl = (CEdit*) GetDlgItem(IDC_EDITBOX);
rect passwordbox;
editCtrl->GetRect(&passwordbox);
CWnd* pParentWnd = GetParent();
editCtrl->Create(ES_PASSWORD,passwordbox,
pParentWnd,IDC_EDIT5_PASSWORD);

Why don't you simply set the password style on the edit control at design time in the resource editor ?

If you don't want to do that, then use ModifyStyle instead of Create - if the window already exists as part of the dialog

GetRect doesn't work in the initialize (OnInitDialog) as the window you are trying to get the rect of doesn't exist yet.  Try doing this in the constructor for your dialog instead.

This is back 2 front jhance

To me the problem seems to be that rose is creating a window which is _already_ created
