i create a dialog with a few EDIT controls (in a resource script), and want to set the focus to the first EDIT control. currently, the OK button (default button) has focus. i tried:
SetFocus(GetDlgItem(dpwpHWND, RESOURCE_ID_OF_EDIT_CONTROL));  
in the WM_ACTIVATE message of the dialog's wndproc, but it didn't work. any suggestions? thanks! [edited by - krez on December 16, 2003 10:36:08 AM]

ah, thank you!

it always screws me up how dialogs switch up the "proper" return value depending on the message.
