Question for Answers2000 again

Dear Answers2000,

Sorry for replying you late!!!

For the previous question, my problem is:

Before resizing the window, for example the size of the window is 400x400....
after resizing the window, the size of the window becomes 450x350.....

My question is how to get these two data in my program....and I want to use these two data at the same time..Can I do like this? Do you understand?

OK first off the CString problem.

When you create a member variable you get a choice of what type

When you go to the member variables dialog, and double clickon your edit's id, say IDC_EDIT, a little dialog pops up.  You can set either a string or window type variable.  Your problem is you picked a CString, and you should have picked a CEdit.

To fix that problem
1. Ctrl-W bring up class wiz for your dialog
2. Go to member variables
3. You should see something like, in the list box
4. Highlight this line
5. Click Delete Variable
6. Now make sure that line is highlighted again
7. Pick Add Variable
8. When the dialog popups up entitled "Add Member Variable", it should have fields for Member Variable Name (an edit control), Category (a combo box) and Variable Type (a combo box)

In Member Variable name, type "m_edit"  - without the quotes
In Category pick "Control"
In Variable Type pick "CEdit"

This fixes the 2 compile errors you're getting

Your code should now compile, if you look at the previous comments in
this explains the sizing code.

Remember the window can only one size at a time.  The reason the fix didn't work before, is it wouldn't compile, but if you re-read, I think it should make sense.

If not ask another follow up question.  

By the way, you don't need to keep opening new questions, I'll keep an eye on your progress.
