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";
}
fileOut.Close();
}

In InitialUpdate of EditView, do the following,
{
 GetEditCtrl().SetWindowText(source);
}


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.

  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" );
