I stepped away from the Win32 API for awhile, came back, and...memory lapse! Anyway, I'm having troubles with window's GetDlgItemInt/SetDlgItemInt functions; how do I go from a pointer to int to an int? Ex.:
int* variable;

...
GetDlgItemInt(dlg_hwnd, DLG_TEXTBOX, variable, TRUE);
...
//miles down the code
SetDlgItemInt(dlg_hwnd, DLG2_TEXTBOX, variable, TRUE);
...
 
Okay, the second is where the error occurs -- obviously. So, how do I go from the pointer obtained via the GetDlgItemInt to a regular int so I can pass it through the SetDlgItemInt function. Thanks, Ax [edited by - Ax on November 9, 2002 7:20:58 PM]

If you use *variable it passes the value that the pointer points to. So it will be treated as an int data type.

so....

SetDlgItemInt(dlg_hwnd, DLG2_TEXTBOX, *variable, TRUE);
