Hi all,

Priyesh managed to teach me how to create a copy button from a single edit box. I have about 5 edit boxes and I don't want to create 5 copy buttons.
How do I create 1 copy button that will copy anything that's hilighted.

This is what I have for the copy button:

CEdit* pEdit = (CEdit*)GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1) ;

Well first of all you can use CEdit::GetSel (you can see in MSDN) to find out what edit box has something hilighted and then get the selection with CEdit::GetSel
