In the Resource Editor do two things:

Select the Edit Control in question and select it's properties:

1) Set it to be multi-line
2) Choose "Want Return"

Now it will trap the RETURN key.

What message handler gets invoked by pressing the RETURN key on the edit box ? Is it one of those that shows up in ClassWizard for an edit control or is it a separate one that I have to use ? Please let me know.
