Multiline Edit Control

Hi Experts,

I have a multiline edit control. When I load the dialog with the edit control, I want to

be able to initiliaze the text in the control so it will insert a line break where spaces occur

in the text. So SetDlgItemText(hWnd, IDC_EDIT, "This is a test"); should display in

the edit box as:

This
is
a
Test

I tried replacing the spaces with '\r' and '\n' characters to no effect.

How do I preformat a string so it will display on multiple lines in the edit control?

Thanks!

You need to use '\r\n', e.g.

SetDlgItemText(hWnd, IDC_EDIT, "This\r\nis\r\na\r\ntest");
