[win32 api] how to set max characters allowed in an edit box?

Recommended Posts

how do you limit an edit/text box where user can type on to, say, 15 characters? I'm doing this to get the text on the edit box:
g_Username = new TCHAR[MAX_USERNAME_LEN];
GetDlgItemText(hWndDlg, IDC_USERNAME, g_Username, MAX_USERNAME_LEN);
but couldn't figure out how to limit the max. char user can type on IDC_USERNAME textbox. please help. thanks!
