I am a beginner in Visual C++. I need some help urgently. I have two edit boxes in a dialog box. Also there is an OK and CAncel button.
                      In one I am supposed to enter a password and in the other I need to confirm the password(that is I type that password once again). If
                      the two passwords match on pressing the OK button then it is fine, else I need a message box which pops up saying that the passwords
                      entered are not same and that we need to check the two passwords once again. Also, if any of the two boxes are blank we need a
                      message box to say that password needs to be entered. On pressing the Cancel button I should be back in the same window with the
                      fields for password and password confirmation cleared. Could someone please help me with writing this code please.


                      Could someone help me out on this fast please!

You could try this.

CString edit1;
CString edit2;
GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1)->GetWindowText(edit1);
GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT2)->GetWindowText(edit2);
if(edit1 != edit2)
 AfxMessageBox("Passwords dont match");
if(edit1 == "" || edit2 ="")
 AfxMessageBox("Can not have blanks in passwords");
