I was just wondering if any one out there could tell me how to send and recieve text from a EDITTEXT control in a windows dialog based program. Thanks.

If you mean set and get the text from a normal text box on a Dialog Box in pure Win32 (no MFC) then here is how...

Getting text:

char Buffer[255];
GetDlgItemText(hDlg, TXT_MYTEXT, (char*)&Buffer, sizeof(Buffer));

Setting text:
SetDlgItemText(hDlg, TXT_MYTEXT, "This goes into the control");

(These both assume hDlg is the HWND of your dialog, and that TXT_MYTEXT is the resource ID of your text box)

Hope this helps
