List-View control label editing problem

I have a list-view control, its labels can be edited by the user. However, after typing just one character, Windows thinks I'm done, for some reason, sends a WM_NOTIFY with LVN_ENDLABELEDIT or whatever it's called, and, oddly enough, sends a WM_COMMAND with command identifier 1 (IDOK).
I think it thinks I canceled the editing, but I did not.

Using Windows NT and MSVC.

Check your "break" statements.

That indeed was the obvious thing to do. It's not the problem though, because I placed a breakpoint there, and the values really were WM_COMMAND and 1.

It is possible to limit the amount of text the user may enter. If this in some way has been set to 1 (default is 30000), you'll get the result you describe.
Try setting the limit using the EM_LIMITTEXT message and see if that will do the trick.

EM_LIMITTEXT
wParam = (WPARAM) cchMax;   // text length, in characters
lParam = 0;                 // not used; must be zero
 
Parameters
cchMax
Value of wParam. Specifies the maximum number of characters the user can enter. If this parameter is zero, the text length is set to 0x7FFFFFFE characters for single-line edit controls or 0xFFFFFFFF for multiline edit controls.
