How to display multiple lines in a edit box at runtime?

Hello everyone,

  I want to display multiple lines in a edit box at run time.

  What I did was as follows:
   szNewLine.Format("%s\n%s", szPrevLine, szLine);
   pEdit->SetWindowText(szNewLine);
  Instead of seeing two lines inside the edit box as I expected, I saw one line with a CR separating two strings. How can I implement multiple lines at run time as if the user hits enter within a multiple-lined edit box?

  Thanks.

Nancy

You'll have to make sure that the edit field has the 'ES_MULTILINE' style set (you can check/set that in the resource editor). Furthermore, you'll have to use the correct linebreak:

  szNewLine.Format("%s\r\n%s", szPrevLine, szLine);
  pEdit->SetWindowText(szNewLine);

'\r\n' is what you'll need.

jkr,

  Thanks for your answer and the note about duplicate question. '\r\n' is exactly what I need. Funny thing is that I tried to put 0x0A(LF) and 0x0D(CR) at the end and it didn't work. Is that the same as '\r\n'?
