Another question on dialog controls

I recently learned how to disable a CButton control prior to opening a modal dialog box with the following code:

CButton *cb = (CButton *)GetDlgItem(IDC_BUTTON);
cb->EnableWindow(FALSE);

I want to do something similar now.  What do I do if I want to make an edit control read only prior to opening the dialog box?

CEdit *ce = (CEdit *)GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1);
ce->SetReadOnly( TRUE );

Should work like a charm! :)

Hope this helps,
David

 If using VC, pull up"help" then "search".  In this case CEdit or edit control is what you should look for.  In the bottom pane look for an entry that says "class members".  You'll access all kinds of great info for that control.  As a bonus, all the standard controls are derived from CWnd, so many CWnd functions are usable on the control as well!

Happy hunting,
David
