I'm using vs2005 but only win32 libraries.

I have a IEdBoxEditor control.  If I enter more than 10 digits of interger number then my code below would fail to get the data.  success is return as 0.  How can correct this problem so there is no limit to the digits entered?  Thanks.

      intRet = (int)GetDlgItemInt(hwndDialog,IDC_INDEPENDENT_ENTRY_ID,&success, TRUE);

Tried it but it still doesn't work.  

longRet = (long)GetDlgItemInt(hwndDialog,IDC_INDEPENDENT_ENTRY_ID,&success, TRUE);

Thanks.

That won't work since you still cast an int to a long, which leave the int limitations. Get that input as a string and convert it, e.g.

#include <stdlib.h>

//...

char acText [255];
char pcCnvEnd;
GetDlgItemText(hwndDialog,IDC_INDEPENDENT_ENTRY_ID,acText, sizeof(acText));

longRet = strtol(acText,&pcCnvEnd,10);

if (NULL == *pcCnvEnd) {

  // conversion successful, it is a valid integer value
}
