Whenever you add 1 or more lines of text call LineScroll() and scroll to the last line of the edit control.  

For example if you have a pointer to an your edit box called pEdit try calling

    pEdit->LineScroll(pEdit->GetLineCount());

whenever you add a new status message to it

> pEdit->LineScroll(pEdit->GetLineCount());

This code will only ever show the last line as the top line in the edit box.

You can do something like this to show the last 10 lines:

int nFirstVisible = pmyEdit->GetFirstVisibleLine();
pmyEdit->LineScroll(pmyEdit->GetLineCount()-nFirstVisible-10, 0);
