Standard Dialog Data Validation Routines

This topic lists the standard dialog data validation (DDV) routines used for common MFC dialog controls.

Note

The standard dialog data exchange routines are defined in the header file afxdd_.h. However, applications should include afxwin.h.

DDV_MaxChars

Call DDV_MaxChars to verify that the amount of characters in the control associated with value does not exceed nChars.
