Accessing CEdit in CDialogBar

I am having problems getting and setting text to edit controls in a dialog bar.

I have a CDialogBar with a few edit controls in the dialog resource.  In my CMainFrame class I have declared public CEdit member variables for these controls , and I invoke their Create() method in CMainFrame::OnCreate(), with the dialog bar class as the parent window and the appropriate resource ID from the dialog resource.

How do I get/set text to these edit controls ? SetWindowText() does not appear to be working. Do I need to subclass ? If so, what window do I subclass ?

Thanks.

Do you mind sending some piece of code of how you declare your controls and stuff?

The problem is that you are creating some set of edit controls in the dialog resource, and again creating the,m programatically.

The solution is to call SubclassDlgItem instead of Create like this:

m_edit1.SubclassDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1, this);
m_edit2.SubclassDlgItem(IDC_EDIT2, this);

during the dialogbar initialization.
