I am new to profiUIs285freeware;

1) I have been trying to handle any changes made in edit control (m_wndDockedCtrlEdit) of the SDIDOCVIEW sample. In MFC for an edit box which is placed on a form view I would simply handle the EN_CHANGE message by using the class wizard to generate the handler function, but I couldn’t do the same thing here.

2) Besides, where can I find documentation on the methods of the e.g. CExtEdit class. To change its conent I used the "SetWindowText" function which was called from CMainframe::OnCreate. But what about the other methods.

Pls help me on the issues.

We modified the SDIDOCVIEW sample for you. The CMyEdit class is what you need. Here is the source code:

The CExtEdit control is an extended version of the CEdit control from MFC. The CExtEdit control supports a themed context menu and a themed window border displayed on mouse hover. The CExtEdit control does not have any other special features. So, its documentation is short. If the edit control is created inside a CExtControlBar control bar window, then you should use message reflection for handling the EN_CHANGE notification in your CExtEdit-derived class. You should insert an entry into the message map of your CExtEdit-derived class:

The handler method looks like
void CYourEditClassNameHere::OnChange()
      . . .

Thanks for your prompt response,

1) I am currently working on the SDIDOCVIEW sample, so I have not derived any classes of my own from CExtEdit, and just an instance of the CExtEdit is created already (m_wndDockedCtrlEdit).

2) The point is that I should handle the MSG from a control that has been created during runtime. Namely I want to handle EN_CHANGE and call e.g. the AfxMessageBox in its handler.

Could you pls advise me on how this should be done.
