    Assuming your using WinAPI, not MFC:
    Code:
    SetWindowText( GetDlgItem( hWnd, IDC_EDIT ), "" );
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah
