LONG lStyle = GetWindowLong(hwndEdit, GWL_STYLE);

SetWindowLong(hwndEdit, GWL_STYLE, WS_HSCROLL | lStyle);

or you can use WS_VSCROLL, or both. If you use MFC you have to drop first parameter of these functions or use :: before them.

Try this:
//assuming that IDC_EDIT1 is the ID value of the edit control in question
HWND hwnd=GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1)->GetSafeHwnd();
::ShowScrollBar(hwnd, SB_VERT, TRUE);

To remove the scrollbar, call the same function with the last parameter as FALSE.

Hope this helps,
Thanks,
