    How can I add to TextBox??(MFC)

    -
    If I have a dialog box that contain textbox and botton .. I want the botton, when I press it, add letter to the textbox.

    If you saw the Windows Calculator . When you press [1] botton it add '1' to the text box... How can I make this..

    --------------------------------
    this is the (OnBottonPress) function that I made:

    CMyDialog dlg;
    dlg.TextBox=dlgTextbox+'1';
    ---------------------------------------
    But no thing happen?!

    in your resource file

    Code:
    #include "Resource.rc"
    #define IDC_STATIC
    
    IDI_DIALOG DIALOG DISCARDABLE 0, 0, 100, 100
    STYLE DS_MODALFRAME | WS_SYSMENU | WS_POPUP | WS_CAPTION
    CAPTION "Sample Dialog"
    FONT 9, "Book Antiqua"
    BEGIN
        GROUPBOX           "Hey......", IDC_STATIC, 3, 3, 90, 90 
        PUSHBUTTON        "Press OK!", IDOK, 7, 7, 50, 50
        CTEXT                   "This is probably the text you were trying to do!!!", IDC_STATIC, 7, 53, 50, 20
    END
    You were trying to do that right?

    Read the existing text from the edit box with GetDlgItemText(), (or similar), use strcat() to append the new character, then SetDlgItemText() to put the new string back.
