CFile::Write question

I have a SDI app w/ a listview. a property sheet will open, user will fill in the fields, and data goes to the listview and property sheet closes.
normally when using a listview i use the serialize function to save data, but i need to save listview data as plain text, so i tried to use CFile::Write method. the problem is when using
file.WriteString(m_edit1);
it only writes the last entry from m_edit1, unlike the serialize function which will save all the m_edit1 entries in the view. is there any way to achieve this using CFile::Write?

You have to make a loop to write every item in the list view.

Have a look at the code in the serialize function and make a duplicate of the IsSaving section but replace the lines ar<< xxxxx with your file.WriteString
