Hi,
Why not EditBox?
Set Stytle: check Multiline and uncheck AutoHscoll and check VerticalScoll

It's called Edit Box in VC++. Click on that  ab| button on controls grid. Draw the edit box on the dialog. Select it, right click and select "Properties". Under "Styles" check "Multiline". Hope this helps.

I already did that but don't know what function can used to add multiline :
I have a edit control  (I am using c/sdk) which i tend to make it as text area to display my program message. the control has properties as:
vertical scroll, auto vscroll, want return.

I was wondering how can i add text in multiple line. for instance, i use
char *buf1 = "hello\r\n";
char *buf2 = "hai\r\n";
SendMessage(GetDlgItem(hDlg, IDC_CON_CON), WM_SETTEXT, 0, (LPARAM) buf1);

SendMessage(GetDlgItem(hDlg, IDC_CON_CON), WM_SETTEXT, 0, (LPARAM) buf2);

it can only display
hai

where i want
hello
hai


Pls help. If possible, do e-mail the solution to my mail box
yccheok@yahoo.com

since i don't have any internet access in this few day and it may take my sometimes to search back my message :)

thanks

regards
yccheok
