Call CEdit::GetSel(). Here's the prototype:

  void GetSel( int& nStartChar, int& nEndChar ) const;

The call returns the beginning and ending of the selection. If there is no selection (eg, you're just looking at a flashing cursor and nothing is highlighted), then the value returned to nStartChar will equal the value returned in nEndChar.

Or is it that you want to do this measurement and have the result indicate the position as a column and row number?

If so, see the EDPOS.ZIP sample on my webpage at http://www.nwlink.com/~mikeblas/samples/ .

Note that my webpage will someday move to http://www.mooseboy.com/ .

Thank Mike Blaszczak, You home page is very usefull, if I find it a week ago, I would not waste four day's time to find out how to catch a key press in IE tool bar's input control, I'm currently working on a Explore CommBand project, when I put a combobox control on the bar, the band bar eat all RETURN, BACKSPACE and F4 key press. though I have solved all problem by myself, I still greatly appreciate your timely help!
