orange_juice asked
i am using a cricheditctrl.
what is the easiest + effective way of displaying line number besides the richedit control? (eg: show it beside the control, line by line, but not in the text area).
  if possible, display up to the place i type
  do i need to go to those owner drawn stuff??? (i never do that though)

I think u need to overide the paint even if u want to do it in the same window.  U can go through the www.scintilla.org there they have an edit box which can be enhanced to your requirements, source code is avaialble for download.
