here...

CString MyStr;

GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1)->GetWindowText(MyStr);

MessageBox(MyStr);

This would also display the message...

YOu could also do it like this which is a better way than the previous...

CString MyStr;
((CEdit *)GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1))->GetWindowText(MyStr);
MessageBox(MyStr);

or even this...

CString MyStr;
CEdit *pMyEdit = (CEdit *)GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1);

pMyEdit->GetWindowText(MyStr);

MessageBox(MyStr);

Hope this helps...
