Very simple VC++ 6.0 problems... I'm a novice

I just now started using Visual C++. I know a lot about C++ but not visual. I have one easy question: If I have an Edit Box control and a button, how would I:
a. Read the input in the edit box
b. Check the validity of the input (make sure it is an integer)
c. Spit out the input in a dialog box when the button is clicked?

Thank you all,
Dan

Use resource editor to create the edit control in a dialog box.
Select the control. Go to its Properties - Style - and set the Number checkbox.
This will allow only numeric input.
To read the input, declare a CString variable say called m_str.
Assume that the edit control has an id called IDC_EDIT1.
Use
GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1)->GetWindowText(m_str);
m_str will now contain the edit controls input.
Use classwizard to map the BN_CLICKED event of the required command. In that handler,
write:
MessageBox(m_str);

thanks
