The solution is to switch to the RichEdit control. It has no upper limit.

  The Rich Edit control is the only solution, if you need more than 64KB.  The single line edit control has a max of 32K, while a multiple line Edit Control has a max of 64KB...

   There is a Knowledge Base article on how to allocate a buffer and make the Edit Control use that buffer, so that you can get the whole 64KB limit.

I know the limitation of CEdit, it hold a local heap handle, so can not make the file large,
My question is : can I use the CEdit display and help it to manage the memory

  Yes, you can...  If you search the Microsoft Knowledge base, (and the online documentation), there is information on how to allocate a new buffer, and set it.

  The article that "fwilkinson" suggested has what I discussed..  You basically allocate a buffer for the Edit Control, and tell it to use the new Buffer.
