    Post Edit Control Limit

    Is there a way to over come the 64kb text limit on edit controls? If there is not, then is there another control (besides rich edit) that acts like an edit control?

    Thanks

    No, unless you upgrade your version of Windows. You could make your own though. Why not rich-edit?

    I have already written my program and I do not want to change some messages for Rich Edit so I was wondering what other options I had. I read about this class called LEdit that some company offers, but it costs a lot of money to get their DLL.

    How would I go about making my own?

    I am using the API and programming in C.

    Thanks

    Petzold will show you more or less eveything that an edit box can do.....

    ....but I cant see the logic in rewriting an edit control to save altering a few message handlers in my app......
