What exactly do you not understand? It 's hard to answer the question if we don't know the exact problem.

Code: Select all

...
//create a text control.
//this -> parent window
//wxID_ANY -> auto-assign ID
//the text to be shown initially
wxTextCtrl* text = new wxTextCtrl(this,wxID_ANY,"This is the value of the text field");
//get the text and store it in a wxString
wxString str = text->GetValue();
//pop up a message box with the obtained text
wxMessageBox(str);
//set some new text
text->SetValue("Some other text.");
...
