First Question:

I guess u want to display something like a file in the EditView.
    CStdioFile file;
  BOOL bOpenOK = file.Open( sFileName,
                    CFile::modeRead );
if (FALSE == bOpenOK)
            return ;
fileOut.ReadString( sLine );
while(fileOut.ReadString( sLine ))
source += sLine + "\r\n";

In InitialUpdate of EditView, do the following,

Second Question:
 i am assuming that u know the line no., if not get the line number using,
int nLine_no = GetEditCtrl().LineFromChar(-1) // i.e get the line no, for the                                                                                                                                                                                // current cursor  position

int nStartIndex = GetEditCtrl().LineIndex(nLine_no);
int nCnt = GetEditCtrl().GetLine(nLine_no, (LPCTSTR)buffer);
// Now select the whole line
GetEditCtrl().SetSel(nStartIndex, nStartIndex + (strlen) buffer);

I'm very sorry if you don´t understand my first question.I want display text lines while i´m execute some operation(like in devstudio debug window). Do you no if there is anyway to "send" one line of text to my CEditview window.
Thanx anyway for your response to my second question.
  If I understand the first part right, you are trying to make a status display, and just add lines to it as some operation progresses, all you need to to is do a CEditCtrl::SetSel(...) to place the caret at the end of the text, and then a CEditCtrl::ReplaceSel(...) with the text you want to add (use CEditView::GetEditCtrl() to gain a reference to the CEditView's Edit Control).

For Example:

   int         iTextLen = 0;
   CEditCtrl   &ecEdit = CEditView::GetEditCtrl();

   iTextLen = ecEdit.GetWindowTextLength();
   ecEdit.SetSel( iTextLen, iTextLen );
   ecEdit.ReplaceSel( "This Text Will Be Added\r\n" );
