    GetWindowText and SendMessage

    I am trying to read text from one textbox in a windows form, and then at the click of a button transfer the contents of that textbox to another form.
    My thinking is that I need to use GetWindowText to find the text within the textbox and then use the SendMessage to send it to another form.
    I cannot find any examples of this being done so would need a little bit of guidence in order to complete this.

    If anyone is able to help that would be great!!

    Golan, that link sent me to use MFC but I am using a windows form application rather than an MFC so when trying to follow the instructions on that I came to a dead end, plus I am using VC++ 2010 so a few of the instructions were out of date.

    Cheers

    Re: GetWindowText and SendMessage

    When attempting to use the class wizard, (well this could also be because I am not using an MFC application right enough) I am not seeing some of the options that they are saying I take. I really need to figure this part out, its the last part of my system I need and I then need to right up a dissertation on it and it is due next tuesday, so apoligies if panic starts to set in

    It's not that hard to read the list of forums and figure it out.
