MFC,C++: CEdit inexplicably has a HWND of X00000000

I've created an MFC CDialog, in the usual way. The following ENSURE is causing the application to trigger a breakpoint:

void CWnd::SetWindowText(LPCTSTR lpszString)
{
      ENSURE(this);
      ENSURE(::IsWindow(m_hWnd) || (m_pCtrlSite != NULL));
.....
}

Looking through the call stack, I can see that my CEDit, from which I have called SetWindowTextA(), has a HWND of 0x00000000:

Description = {CEdit hWnd=0x00000000}

This is clearly bogus, but I have no idea why it should be so.

If I don't call any dialog items member functions, the dialog displays without trouble.

I've never had any trouble doing this in the recent past.

MY DoDataExchange is perfect - It was generated by the form editor.

The correct dialog IDD is specified in my enum.

What has gone wrong?

Regards,
Sternocera

You haven't linked the edit control to the edit (in the resource).

Check you have the necessary line in the DoDataExchange.
Check you are NOT calling the SetText before the CDialog::OnInitDialog is called

Andy,

I forgot to call the base class implementation. Embarresingly enough, this is the second time you've answered the same question in a short period.

I'm quite sick at the moment, so I guess I'm not at my peek.

Anyway, Thanks.
