CEdit::ReplaceSel

Call this function to replace the current selection in an edit control with the text specified by lpszNewText.

void ReplaceSel( 
   LPCTSTR lpszNewText,
   BOOL bCanUndo = FALSE  
);

lpszNewText

Points to a null-terminated string containing the replacement text.

bCanUndo

To specify that this function can be undone, set the value of this parameter to TRUE . The default value is FALSE.

Replaces only a portion of the text in an edit control. If you want to replace all of the text, use the CWnd::SetWindowText member function.

If there is no current selection, the replacement text is inserted at the current cursor location.
