    Reverse Richedit sorta thing...

    We'll I'm making my irc client, and I'm at the point where I have to make the decision of what kind of control to use for my channel/query/status windows...

    So either use a static control which will scroll from bottom up (afaik) but not have any color (which sucks..)

    Or use a rich edit control, which has colors..but scrolls from the top->bottom, which I would find quite annoying as all the "good" irc clients..and the only one's I've used have had this..

    There's also a third "option" which is to DrawText everything..but I would use rich edit far before I would attempt to do that..just seems more of a pain than its worth.

    Anyway..comments or suggestions of what I could/should use would be great..

    Here is the deal, changing colors in a rich edit control can be tedious when making a text editor. However, a more linear type of text color change (like an irc client) is really not that much work. Using functions like TextOut() may end up being a lot of trouble. I would go with the rich edit control.
