 Minus Sign and Float. Pt. Edit Control


One of my students had exactly the same problem and after DAYS of
worrying about it found that in the styles tab of the properties page of
the edit control he had "number" ticked. The result is that the edit box
will not accept anything other than numbers

Hope this helps,




> A second edit control was assigned the variable name m_fMyEdit.
> The valid range for this FLOAT was also set to plus or minus 10.
> I ran the program and the edit control WOULD NOT accept
> a MINUS sign!

> The error message indicated that the edit control wanted a
> number. Say what?
