Hi Experts,
I would like to achieve a text box (edit box) with rounded corners in MFC. Can someone please help me achieve the same using MFC? This is with VS 2010.

Thanks and regards,
Karrtik

Hi Karrtik Iyer,

sorry, I would have written earlier but I was in holiday. If this is still an issue for you maybe I can help you.

Below you can find the code for a class CRoundedEditCtrl which can be used like a CEdit. It should be enough to add these files to you projects, include the header i.e. in the header of a dialog class where you want to use them and subclass your edit controls (this is i.e. done automatically if you use ClassWizard, just replace the generated CEdit in header to CRoundedEditCtrl).

The CRoundedEditCtrl is borderless, I hope this is ok, I found drawing a border in a nice way is difficult, tests I made always looked ugly. But as a goodie there's a SetColors function to change text- and background-color.

Hope this helps,

ZOPPO
