Hi Everybody,

My question today is about using Iczelion's tutorials with RadASM.

I have got as far as Chapter 12 and have got very stuck. I am having problems with creating the edit box. Then I enter the code as shown, my edit box will not appear.
mov eax, uMsg
        invoke CreateWindowEx,NULL,ADDR EditClass,NULL,\
                  WS_VISIBLE or WS_CHILD or ES_LEFT or ES_MULTILINE or\
                  ES_AUTOHSCROLL or ES_AUTOVSCROLL,0,\
        mov hwndEdit,eax
        invoke SetFocus,hwndEdit

However, as I understand, in RadASM you create the edit box in the dialog editor and display it that way. If I do this I can see my edit box but cannot 'communicate' with it. What is the correct procedure for creating and communicating with commonents?

You specify as size 0,0,0,0. Of course you can not see your Edit Field.
Replace the 4 zeros with 0,0,500,500 and try again.

Oh, I double checked. Icz really used 0,0,0,0 for sizes but then he resizes the control during the WM_SIZE message. Did you already add following part:

        mov eax,lParam
        mov edx,eax
        shr edx,16
        and eax,0ffffh
        invoke MoveWindow,hwndEdit,0,0,eax,edx,TRUE

If not - well that might explain it ;)
