Hi i am currently creating a Textctrl box and am looking to read in values from a file, I dont want to display everything in the file at once i.e using the function Load file
I would like to be able to read in either a line or single values if possible and store them in a variable which i can then use to display in the text box as i need to
Thanx in advance

Depends. If the file isn't too big maybe wxTextFile could be of use.

Hi,

wxFFile leaves you doing all the work. wxTextFile would be fine for adding lines, but doesn't help with shorter strings or other values.

Your best choice would be wxTextInputStream, which knows about all these things. http://docs.wxwidgets.org/stable/wx_wxt ... tream.html
