Setting the text on a CEdit Control

The the situation is as follows.

I have a CStringList with an un known number of strings stored in it (rollResults). I also have a CEdit control for output (m_rollResults). Each string ends with a '\n' character.

CStringList output;
// m_rollResults is type CEdit
// fill out put with various data

// clear anything in the in the edit box
m_rollResults.SetSel(0, -1);
m_rollResults.Clear();

// place all the strings in output, into m_rollResults
for(POSITION pos = output.GetHeadPosition(); pos != NULL; )
    m_rollResults.ReplaceSel(output.GetNext(pos));

Everything seems to work except all the output is placed on one line. I do not want to use word wrap or anything like that. I want each string to be placed on a new line in the CEdit control. I have tryed placing a '\n', '\r', and '\0' char at the end of each line but all it did was print an unknow char.

I know I am doing things in a round about way. I will up the point if anyone can show me the proper way of doing this.

You will have to put a "\r\n" at the end of each line to achieve the desired effect.

I tried that but it would only print those unknown char boxes.

Do you have "multiline" enabled? "\r\n" used to work the last 10 years...

>Each string ends with a '\n' character.
It is possible that you have "\n\r\n".
First try to remove '\n' and add "\r\n". (Or replace last character)
In addition, you must check that your edit control has style "Multiline". (Use resource editor)
