    Here's your starter for three...


    Just some quick questions to boggle your minds.

    1. How do I work out what the height of an edit box is supposed to be, dependant on the font that it's using (In this example, the stock DEFAULT_GUI_FONT). I've tried:-
    LOGFONT font;
    GetObject(GetStockObject(DEFAULT_GUI_FONT), sizeof(LOGFONT), &font);
    g_hwndEdit = CreateWindowEx(WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE, "EDIT", "", WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, 0, 0, 320, -font.lfHeight + 2 * GetSystemMetrics(SM_CYEDGE), hwnd, NULL, g_hInstance, NULL);
    ...but it's a little small for my liking. Any better ideas?

    2. How do I work out where the end of a HTTP header ends and the content begins? Should I look for the set of "\r\n"s between them, or is there a better way?

    3. Is the only way to know when a HTTP transfer has finished is when the server hangs up on you?

    Thanks for any help.

    1) Use GetTextExtent32

    2) There's a blank line between the header and body data

    3) Look for the "Content-size" header
