Hi People. I know I''m asking a lot lately, but I''m in a learning session so what the hey here it is. I''m currently making a text editor(totaly home made) and everything goes just right until it''s time to load. When I save everything goes just fine and does it the way I whant. But when I load, it only loads 1 line of text. What I want is to load every line, cause this is a text editor and a text editor is supposed to load more than one line. Here is how I do it. fin file; file.open(filename); file.getline(buffer, 50); SetWindowText(bla, buffer); I''m currently using win32 api and not mfc or any dialog box. Please Help me ! Kevin

Well, the getline function does just what its name says - it gets you one line. You can try

file.getline(buffer, 50, EOF)

to change the delimiter to the end-of-file character to get the whole file, but you''ll probably need a much bigger buffer than that.
