    Try removing the read only style and then adding the text. then return the read only style.

    use SendMessage and EM_SETREADONLY

    SetWindowText should work.

    [EDIT]
    but you have to add the text to a buffer that holds whats already in the edit control then call SetWindowText with that buffer bc it just resets whats there
