I'm trying to display some string in a dialog box. I use the
 CString variable and UpdateData(FALSE) to do it. But I can not get multiple lines out. They are all in one line.

Since it looks like you're using MFC and Visual C++, do the following:

- Open the dialog for editing in the resource editor
- Right click on the troublesome edit box
- Go to properties
- Go to one of the other tabs (something like More Styles) and select "multiple lines"
- Recompile

It should work now.  If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.

You will need to make sure that your lines are separated by \r\n and NOT \n\r.

The edit control will only use \r\n as the line separator.
