An edit control (which can also be set to not allow editing) fits this criteria

HWND hWndEdit ;
hWndEdit = CreateWindow(
"edit",
"Hello world",
WS_CHILD | WS_VSCROLL | ES_LEFT | ES_MULTILINE, /* Add ES_READONLY if you don't want user to be able edit */
x,
y,
nWidth,
nHeight,
hWndParent,
(HMENU)1000,
hInstance,
NULL
) ;
 
1. Edit control can not be a top level window.  Therefore create this as a child window of your frame window (e.g. Call this when WM_CREATE is sent to your frame).  Your frame should include WS_CLIPCHILDREN style.

2. Don't forget to make this visible
ShowWindow( hWndEdit, SW_SHOW ) ;

3. Size this control x,y,nWidth,nHeight to fit your frame client area.  If you want to make it fit changes in the frame size, resize hWndEdit in response to WM_SIZE being sent to your frame.

4. Retain hWndEdit in a global or static variable.
