    sure, at the risk of appearing as a blatant self-publicist:

    But have a read of:

    http://www.winprog.org/tutorial/

    As it is very good, informative and useful - the FAQ there is good too and well worth a look. You should also look through the links on this site (cprogramming) and the links they lead to.

    An edit box is just like any other child window (well, mostly at least). You create one with CreateWindow(Ex) and you handle its messages. You can send notifications and handle its messages in WM_COMMAND. You can read up on these constants, etc.
