    Data type

    Is there anyway of changing the type of data in 'member variable' in the MFC ClassWizard of a edit box? Can i change it to a data type from a external library ( instead of CString, int, UINT, long,.. etc )?

    Not without editing the MFC source.

    Better to derive a class from the MFC class and change what you need

    Thanks Fordy.

    I need to use a big integer variable call ZZ in an external library in performing some calculation therefore i need to show the result on the edit box.

    Is there anywhere i can read up on editing the MFC source?
