Resource editor - properties of the edit box.  Set Multiine to true and also Want Return to true.  That should do it.

I read the article you posted.
AndyAinscow has said how this Enter task should be fixed correctly.

If we go back to this article, pay attention that there is no default button in his dialog - when you press Enter, actually, you press on this default button. In your case, it is Ok or Cancel and so, when you press Enter, you close the dialog.
Also if you changed PreTranslateMessage as it is shown in the article, you need to check that you don't have a mistake with GetClassName stuff. When you debug your app, set a breakpoint on the line with return TRUE from this function and check if you get there.

But really, this article gives a bad advice.
