Reading Edit Box(editor)

Could any one give me the code to read the line of text from  text editor into the declared string. I am using Visual C++ 4.0. I want the code to be in such a way that after reading the entire line from this text editor, The line counter will move to the next line. This editor is not much different from the one done with the application wizard. It is an MDI editor.

hope you must be using multiline Edit control for writing text

step 1
:Edit.GetLineCount  : Get no of lines in multiline edit box

then in for loop

for all line
     // returns no of bytes at line no nLine
      int Edit.LineLength( int nLine  );
      // if not using CSting then allocate buffer of line size
     int edit.GetLine( int nLine, LPTSTR lpszBuffer );// get individual line
for next

All the best

dd_b,

Hi!! Thank you for your quick respond. I have tried your suggestion. I am really a new comer to the language ( I have been using PASCAL and VISUAL BASIC for my programmings) therefore I could not figure out how to resolve the errors that arised during compilation period. Is this how I should implement the code?

      CEDITORView:CEdit.GetLineCount(nLine, LPTSTR lpszBuffer);

If I do it like that this is the error s I got from that single line.

Compiling...
IDSSView.cpp
G:\Idss\EDITORView.cpp(142) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '.'
G:\Idss\EDITORView.cpp(142) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '.'
G:\Idss\EDITORView.cpp(143) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before ':'
G:\Idss\EDITORView.cpp(143) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before ':'
Error executing cl.exe.
IDSSView.obj - 4 error(s), 0 warning(s)

So is it possible that you can give me more direct code?

You may as well conactme directly at: palapyean@usa.net or through AOL insatant message (palapyean)

thanx

dd_B has given only the relevent command which can be easily obtained from the on-line help he didnot give precisely what I wanted, even after giving him such long time.
