There is a way to allow numbers in an edit control only:
Code:
;;
hlt                                             ; use it to run a debugger
invoke  GetWindowLong,[idc_txty],GWL_STYLE      ; get window style
or      eax,ES_NUMBER                           ; prove bit magic you need
invoke  SetWindowLong,[idc_txty],GWL_STYLE,eax  ; set window style
;;

Thanks for the info edemko..

I wonder are there any examples or tut's explaining what I need......

ie the result of a calculation being displayed in a edit style window on a main window.

I have yet to find an example of such...

you can set ES_NUMBER style for edit window while its creation, if it is dialog control - directly in rc editor or in resources where this control declared. use SetDlgItemInt api function then.

HI....

thanks for the replies...

now placing a number in the window....is there a function I should look at for positioning the digits as they go into the window....ie Right to left
x-y positioning or similar I guess..

Create a control inside the window (you can position the control when creating it), then set your text in that control instead of the the window itself.

read msdn or win32.hlp about edit controls - a lot of things will become more clear to you. there are styles which let you align text right (ES_RIGHT) and other. it is better to set styles when control is created, changing some styles after edit control is already created may take no effect.
