Use \r\n, edit control must have multiline style

Example

CString str = "Hello\r\nWorld" ;
m_edit.SetWindowText( str ) ;

Where m_edit is your CEdit control

Sorry I just realized I should probably explain multi-line style.

It's ES_MULTILINE

set in when you CreateWindow the edit, or for dialog based edits on the Styles option on Edit Properties for the edit control in the resource editor.
