Hi,

I have a dialog containing 5 Edit boxes. Is there a way to handle the case where any one of those Edit boxes loses focus as opposed to putting an OnKillFocus event for every single Edit box?
Can this be done in MFC?

Regards,

Add OnKillFocus handler for all the edit boxes.

Inside each one write

CWnd* pWndParent = GetParent();
pWndParent.SetFocus();

Manually add the following in your dialog cpp file in the message map section
      ON_CONTROL_RANGE(EN_KILLFOCUS, IDC_EDIT1, IDC_EDIT5, OnEditKillFocus)
Add handler in dialog as
void CDlgTestDlg::OnEditKillFocus(UINT unID)
{
      TRACE(_T("%d\n"), unID) ;
}
and in the header file,
afx_msg void OnEditKillFocus(UINT unID) ;

Note* the IDC_EDIT1 to IDC_EDIT5 must be in a continous range in ascending order for this to work. So if you have added controls to the dialog at different times, edit your resource.h to make sure these are continuous.
