    Is Text Modified in Edit Control

    Hi
    I would like to display a message in a statusbar if text inside an edit box has been modified. I don't seem to get this to work. Which message should I respond to? I've tried WM_CHAR and WM_KEYDOWN in my WindowProc.

    Code:
    case WM_KEYDOWN:
           ModifiedMessage(hwnd);
           break;
    I have this function open a MessageBox for debugging purposes, and it shows that the ModifiedMessage function is never called.

    #Edit:
    I already got it working with adding this to the WM_COMMAND case:
    Code:
    case WM_COMMAND:
               if (HIWORD(wParam) == EN_CHANGE)
               {
                   ModifiedMessage(hwnd);
                   break;
               }
    I hope, this won't mess up anything else.

    No, it won't. Use of the EN_CHANGE notification is correct in the context you have described.
