Activex control: subclassing Edit control

Scenario (If you test it, it will take less than 2 minutes):

1) Create a new App: MFC ActiveX AppWizard
2) Select to include only one control, which subclasses the Edit control
3) Select finish
4) Compile
5) Test (I did in VB), inserting the control in a container (VB form)

The problem is that the control seems to have a different behaviour than a control belonging to the "Edit" class. For example: When typing text, when the caret reaches the right edge of the control, you can't type anything more!!
Is this normal, or why does it not behave as a classic Edit control???

You need to change the the edit style to have ES_AUTOHSCROLL in the controls generated header.
