In a dialog based application, onclick button1 i should generate dynamically three edit boxes, and onclick button2  previous edit boxes should vanish and new set of four edit boxes should appear.(i.e. client area should be erased on onclick button2 and new sizes of edit boxes should appear dynamically). if any one knows please send me sample program.
thanks

Hi,

Solution is simple.

1. Have the CEdit pointers in the .h file of ur dialog class in the public section

//I am taking 2 pointers here for easy understanding
CEdit *pEdit1;
CEdit *pEdit2;

2. Have rectangles of each edit control u want to display also

CRect m_cRect1;
CRect m_cRect2;

3. In the constructor U intialize them to NULL and set the rect sizes

pEdit1 = NULL;
pEdit2 = NULL;

//Fill in m_cRect1 and m_cRect2 here
//...

4. Now, on click on button 1, u execute the follwing code

void Cddddlg::OnButton1()
{
//Delete the old set if any
if(pEdit2)
{
delete pEdit2;
pEdit2 = NULL;
}

pEdit1 = new CEdit;
pEdit1->Create(WS_CHILD|WS_BORDER|WS_TABSTOP|ES_LEFT, m_cRect1, this, 100);
pEdit1->ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);
}

void Cddddlg::OnButton1()
{
//Delete the old set if any
if(pEdit1)
{
delete pEdit1;
pEdit1 = NULL;
}

pEdit2 = new CEdit;
pEdit2->Create(WS_CHILD|WS_BORDER|WS_TABSTOP|ES_LEFT, m_cRect2, this, 101);
pEdit2->ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);
}

That should give u the idea on how to go abt it.

Try it out.

Or one can hide/show edit boxes after appropriate clicks.

Like this

CMyDlg:OnButton1()
{
    ShowFirstTreeEditBoxes(TRUE);
}

CMyDlg:OnButton1()
{
        ShowFirstTreeEditBoxes(FALSE);
}

CMyDlg::ShowFirstTreeEditBoxes(BOOl bFlag)
{
// first 3 boxes
GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1)->ShowWindow(bFlag ? SW_SHOW : SW_HIDE);
GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT2)->ShowWindow(bFlag ? SW_SHOW : SW_HIDE);
GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT3)->ShowWindow(bFlag ? SW_SHOW : SW_HIDE);
// other 4
GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT4)->ShowWindow(!bFlag ? SW_SHOW : SW_HIDE);
GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT5)->ShowWindow(!bFlag ? SW_SHOW : SW_HIDE);
GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT6)->ShowWindow(!bFlag ? SW_SHOW : SW_HIDE);
GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT7)->ShowWindow(!bFlag ? SW_SHOW : SW_HIDE);
}

Then one doesn't need to mess with on-screen coordiates - they set in resource editor.

Hope it helps...
