CEdit::CreateEx problem

Hi,
I want to create an editable CEdit with
3d look. When I used CEdit::Create, I
the attribute WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE was not
recognized. So I used CreateEx. The
following is is my code:

CString wclass = AfxRegisterWndClass(WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE, 0, 0, 0);


m_myedit.CreateEx(WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE, wclass, NULL, WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | ES_LEFT | ES_MULTILINE | WS_BORDER | ES_AUTOVSCROLL | ES_WANTRETURN
 , rect, this, IDC_MY_NAME_EDIT, NULL);


The edit control becomes uneditable though Iam not passing ES_READONLY attribute anywhere. It is grey in color.
(instead of white)

Sorry I forgot to mention.  m_myedit is
a class derived from CEdit.

I have
class CCustomEdit : public CEdit
{
......
....
}

That's why I had to do AfxRegisterWndClass and
get the class name

You should not register a class yourself, the class name of an edit control must be "EDIT". You actually created a normal window instead of an edit control. Try my code.

I thought since Iam not using CEdit
directly, I registered the class and
passed it to CreateEx. Let me try what
to suggested and let you know tomorrow.
Thanks.
