RichEdit control

I'm trying to use the RichEdit control in a MFC based application.  When I place it on a dialog, I can't seem to associate a member variable name with it. It just does not show up in class wizzard.  I then tried to use GetDlgItem to grab ahold of it but the dialog fails to create with that control in it.  What extra support does this control need to be used in a dialog?

Before creating a rich edit control, you must call the LoadLibrary function to ensure that the RICHED20.DLL or RICHED32.DLL library is loaded. RICHED32.DLL is Rich Edit version 1.0. RICHED20.DLL is Rich Edit version 2.0. Windows NT versions 4.0 and later ship with both rich edit libraries. Windows 95 ships with only RICHED32.DLL, but RICHED20.DLL is compatible with Windows 95 and may be present if an application that uses it has been installed on the system. You may do so in the member function InitInstance of your application class.

Also check your dialog script. If you loaded RICHED32.DLL, specify "RichEdit" for the window class parameter. If you loaded RICHED20.DLL, specify RICHEDIT_CLASS for the window class parameter.
