I need to add a CString variable to an edit box and then immediately have the cursor at the end of the string in the edit box. I have been using UpdateData(FALSE) to display the variable in the edit box but this places the cursor at the start of the string.

Please help.

Looks like CEdit is derived from CWnd, CWnd has a method called SetCaretPos() so since your edit control is using a CEdit object to store the text you should be able to do something like

EditControlVariable.SetCaretPos(YourCStringVariable.GetLength());

See if that works for ya.

Hi,

Do like this after inserting the string

m_ctrlEdit.SetSel(m_strEdit.GetLength()-2, m_strEdit.GetLength()-1, FALSE);

Here m_ctrlEdit is the member variable for the edit control of CEdit type.
Here m_strEdit is the member variable for the edit control of CString type.

Hope that solves ur prob.
