I have a rich edit control in a dialog which may have some text already when dialog starts, I need to detect if user types inside this control, if user does, I want a hiding button  to show up. How to tell when user types something in control?

Thanks.

Handle EN_CHANGE message in the dialog - it is send by edit control to parent window when text is changed.

To get this notification working add this line to OnInitDialog:

m_rich.SetEventMask(m_rich.GetEventMask() | ENM_CHANGE);   // m_rich is CRichEditCtrl class member
