When I use VS6 to create edit fields, the are implemented with the '3d' look.  As to say that they have an indented look via a white righ and bottom border and black Top and left.  When I create a text edit using the CEdit class, all I get is a white box.  When I add the WS_BORDER flag, it is outlines in black.  What is the key to get the '3d/indented' look?

Try the foll in OnCreate:
m_Edit.Create(WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_BORDER, rect, pParent,IDC_MYEDIT);

rect is Edit contorl's rectangle
pParent = this (usually)

You can try the following code, it works fine for me. I did this in the OnInit of a Dialog Box. It gives me a '3d look n feel' edit control.

CEdit *pMyEdit = new CEdit;
RECT rc = { 100,100,200,200};
pMyEdit->Create( WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE ,rc,this , 3000);

/**
alter extended the style of the edit control
**/
 
long nExistingStyle=0;
nExistingStyle=GetWindowLong (pMyEdit->m_hWnd , GWL_EXSTYLE);

nExistingStyle = (nExistingStyle | WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE);
SetWindowLong(pMyEdit->m_hWnd, GWL_EXSTYLE , nExistingStyle);

/**
flush the changes using SetWindowPos, otherwise you will see the same old 'plain' edit control
**/

pMyEdit->SetWindowPos(&wndTop, 0, 0, 0, 0,SWP_FRAMECHANGED | SWP_NOMOVE  | SWP_NOSIZE );
