Easy, check for style of a CEdit


Easy question, how do I check if a CEdit has the ES_MULTILINE property specified?

I know it's something like:

    CEdit m_Edit;

    bool bIsMultiline = m_Edit.GetStyle() |= ES_MULTILINE ? true : false;

What's the funny bitwise check you can do though?

You'll need to use

bool bIsMultiline = m_Edit.GetStyle() & ES_MULTILINE ? true : false;

or a bit simpler

bool bIsMultiline = m_Edit.GetStyle() & ES_MULTILINE;

'&' is the bitwise AND operator.
