Getting numeric data from an edit box

Recommended Posts

Pretty much all I know about edit boxes are how to get a string from them. Is there a such thing as a numeric edit box? I just need to get some numbers from the user, but after thinking about it this seems pretty involved unless there is a simple way to do it.

Maybe this will help. If you can capture the "user input" as a string or a char*. Try using one of these lines:

//string example

string someStringiter;
int i = atoi(someStringiter.begin());

//char* example

char* someCharptr
i = atoi(someCharptr);

Input from user:
" -9885 pigs"
OUTPUT of i:
-9885
