CEdit and the return key

I have a dialog derived from cformview.

On the dialog I have a single line edit control that I treat as a command line. What I need to do is recognize when when the user finshes typing command and its arguments. What I would normally do is check is '\n' is at the end of
the CString associated with the edit box.  Problem is the '\n' gets stripped unless I use a multi-line edit box.

I really want a single line edit box.


void CView::OnUpdateEditCommandline()
{
       UpdateData(TRUE);  
      if (m_CommandLine.Right(1) =='\n')
                  {
            m_CommandLine is complete start parsing the command line
                  }
}

this only works if I resize my edit box from 1 line to 2 lines.

Any work around for this?

the styles on the Editbox are: Multiline,Auto Hscroll, Want Return

Why not put a default button (okay) on the dialog?  When you press return, it is the same as pressing the default button.

Try disabling BOTH Multiline and Want Return.  Then, when the user hits 'return' the default button on your dialog should be pressed.
