You can use FILE * for ths purpose.

The steps you should follow.
1. Open the file in read mode.
2. Get the file size.
3. Allocate the buffer.
4. Read the file contents.
5. Close the file.
6. Set the contents to the edit control.

thanks for the reply.but doing so i think the contents will be displayed in the editcontrol.The size of the edit control is small i think(32 k not sure...plz correct me if am wrong)What to do if the size is larger than that?Mainly i want to open the file with its appication form.That is if i click a word file then it should open as it is.i.e in MS WORD.
In a file dialog box if we select a file then it opens as it is.I want my file to open like that.plz let me know if my question is not clear.Thanks a lot once again.
