    editbox strings - visual c++

    hi, my program is using a dialog box in visual c++. I'm trying to use an editbox to print general information to help me make sure everything is working properly at runtime. I can make it print strings using the .Format member function, the problem is that when i want it to print another string it replaces the first one. Instead i'd want the new string printed on a newline saving the old string it had previously printed.

    any ideas?

    I'm assuming you're using MFC? Do you want to append text to the edit box?

    Just making a list box and adding to the list has got to be a lot easier than appending text to an edit box.
