The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows versions 3.0, 3.1

SUMMARY

When a dialog box has an edit control, it may be helpful if the commands from the Edit menu on the application's main window can be used to change the text. You must consider the following factors:

  • Where does the input focus go when the editing operation is complete?
  • What happens if no text is selected when Cut, Copy, or Clear is chosen?
  • If more than one edit control is visible, on which control should the action be taken?

When the main window receives a command from its Edit menu, the corresponding command is sent to the appropriate edit control. CreatDlg.exe is a sample that demonstrates this procedure. The code is commented, and a Readme.txt file that discusses coding issues is included.
