huge text in a "static text" -box : how ???

Hello,

Using visual studio , how should I display a huge text in a "static-text" box? It is a fixed (help) text. I know you can type it in the properties window using \n and \t etc... , but the problem is you can't paste it in the properties-window, since it's only the first line which stays when you trie to paste it.

So, how can I enter a big text without having to retype it all??

Thx

In fact you can store many lines at properties window, but you have to write newline as \n.
To align columns you can try to use \t tabulator, but as you describe your problem I think a richedit control will be more useful.
