The DDX_Control function subclasses the control, specified by nIDC, of the dialog box, form view, or control view object.

void AFXAPI DDX_Control( 
   CDataExchange* pDX, 
   int nIDC, 
   CWnd& rControl  


  • pDX
    A pointer to a CDataExchange object.

  • nIDC
    The resource ID of the control to be subclassed.

  • rControl
    A reference to a member variable of the dialog box, form view, or control view object related to the specified control.


The pDX object is supplied by the framework when the DoDataExchange function is called. Therefore, DDX_Control should only be called within your override of DoDataExchange.
