    working with resource files

    its a pain int eh butt to have to manually lay out all the components, so im playing with the resource file. i can get the dialog box to show up and have the callback funtion and everything.

    except, if i have a button on the form, and its been clicked, or i want to add text to a edit box, how do i get its window handle? all i know is its id thingy, like IDC_BUTTON or whatever...ive been looking around and thought this would be the quickest way...if i find out before someone posts ill juust delete this

    thanks

    HWND hCntrl=GetDlgItem(hDlg,IDC_CNTRL_ID);

    where hDlg is the dialog box handle and IDC_CNTRL_ID is the short int id for your control.

    >>the id is always a short int?<<

    If it's a number, yes. You can also use strings as id's but I wouldn't recommend it.
