Hi,

I assume that, that button is also in same dialog box. And U have a class for that button.

Do like this whenever u want to set the text.

((CMyDlgClass *)GetParent())->SetDlgItemText(IDC_MYEDIT, "Hi");

here CMyDlgClass is the dialog class and u have to include the .h file of that to the button class.

Hope this helps.
