It's EN_CHANGE notification message that comes with WM_COMMAND

like:

switch(uMsg)
{
  case WM_COMMAND:
   if((HIWORD(wParam) == EN_CHANGE) && //notification
     (LOWORD(wParam) == MY_IDC_EDIT))   //your edit control ID
   {
     ....
    }
    break;
}

EN_CHANGE
The EN_CHANGE notification message is sent when the user has taken an action that may have altered text in an edit control. Unlike the EN_UPDATE notification message, this notification message is sent after the system updates the screen. The parent window of the edit control receives this notification message through a WM_COMMAND message.

LRESULT CALLBACK WindowProc(
  HWND hwnd,       // handle to window
  UINT uMsg,       // WM_COMMAND
  WPARAM wParam,   // edit control identifier, EN_CHANGE
  LPARAM lParam    // handle to edit control (HWND)
);
Parameters
wParam
The low-order word specifies the edit control identifier.
The high-order word specifies the notification message.

lParam
Handle to the edit control.
