I want to get a string from a text box with GetDlgItmText() (I think this is the function). One of the parameters is the number of characters to get from the textbox. Well, the thing is, I don't know how many characters there are going to be. I just want to get all of the characters from the text box, not a limited amount. And, how would you know once it is the end of the string from a text box? Would there be the esc char ('\0')? Otherwise, how could you tell? Thanks.
