How do you get the value of an edit box in C++?

Well assuming that you are using the Windows API ( which I think you were off to start learning last time ) there are 2 ( maybe more ) ways..
Method 1 -- Use GetWindowText() -- I think this works!
int length = GetWindowTextLength( hwnd ) + 1;
char buffer[ length ];
GetWindowText( hwnd, buffer, length );
the variable buffer now contains the text of the window....maybe ;)..
Method 2-- The more correct way is to use the EM_GETLINE message--
char *buffer = (char*)SendMessage( hwnd, EM_GETLINE, (WPARAM)1, (LPARAM)0 );
I'm pretty sure that those methods both work..
