Hello,
I am novice in MFC programming. I use VC++ 5.0. I have 70 radio buttons in one group. Now when i press OK, i want to know which radio button is checked. Is there any method to know that? same way i have edit boxes in one group and i want to know which edit box is empty.

Thanks,
Namrata

Hi,

Give the Ids of the radio buttons and edit boxes carefully and continuosly. 100 - 170 for radio buttons.

Then in OnOk() do

for(int Index = 100; Index < 170; Index++)
{
if(((CButton *)GetDlgItem(Index)->GetCheck() == 1)
{
//Yes, that is Ur checked button
break;
}
}

Then follow the similar thing for edit boxes, and in OnOk() do
for(int Index = 200; Index < 270; Index++)
{
CString Text;
Text.Empty();
((CEdit *)GetDlgItem(Index)->GetWindowText(Text);
if(Text.IsEmpty())
{
//Yes, that is Ur empty edit box
}
}

Those Ids U can open the resource.h and change them.
try it out.

To khow, which radio button is checked, U need to associate variable with first button in group:

right mouse button click -> Class Wizard -> Member variables -> Add variable

Add new variable:

m_Radio
Value
int

In code:

UpdateData(FALSE); //Update m_Radio
switch (m_Radio) {
  case 0: //...Selected 1st button
  case 1; //...Selected 2nd button
//...etc
}

For edit boxes:

CString szStr;

GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1)->GetWindowText(szStr);

if (szStr.IsEmpty()) {
  //Edit is empty
}

Hope thats helps,

Hi namrata,

you can also use GetNextDlgGroupItem() to step through all controls of the group...

Hi mahno,
I used UpdateData(TRUE) and its working. But it doesn't work with UpdateData(FALSE). Am i doing something wrong? Also, with this method, if i add more radio buttons in that group, then i will only have to change resource.h (for continuous IDs) and not rest of the program. is that right?

not checked edit box part yet. sorry for the delay.

Hi namrata,

Of course, UpdateData(TRUE); It's my mistake :( U don't need to change resource.h file (radio ID's have no any effect to). U need to set propierty "Group" on first check and set right tab order.

Hi mahno,

thanks for the help. Radio button part works now. but can i get control ID from the member variable value? e.g. if my member variable value is 0, how do i know that its control ID is 500?

also am trying edit box part. As i wrote, i have group of edit box. Edit box contain strings so will member variable work this time? i have a group of 10 edit box and want to know which edit box(es) is(are) empty. should i process as GetNextDlgGroupItem() to step through all controls of the group or is there any other way?

thanks again, sorry for the trouble

Why U want to know ID? If U want to change radio button U can do this by following way:

m_Radio = 3;//new value
UpdateData(FALSE); //Now FALSE :-)

About Edit boxes:
Yes, U can use GetNextDlgGroupItem()

brgs,
