    rich edit 4.1 is giving me a head-ache

    I am having some trouble here. My code will work fine using rich edit 3.0 but when I try and go with 4.1 the edit control won't be created. Here is the general idea of my code:

    Code:
    WORD GetRichEditVersion(void) {
    	static WORD wRichVersion = NO_RICH;
    
    	// this will keep the program from opening multipile instances
    	// of the correct rich edit dll.
    	if(!wRichVersion) {
    		if(!LoadLibrary(TEXT("Msftedit.dll"))) {
    			if(!LoadLibrary(TEXT("Riched20.dll"))) {
    				if(LoadLibrary(TEXT("Riched32.dll")))
    					wRichVersion = RICH_1_0;
    			} else
    				wRichVersion = RICH_2_0;
    		} else
    			wRichVersion = RICH_4_1;
    	}
    
    	return wRichVersion;
    }
    
    	/* Meanwhile, elsewhere in my program (in WM_CREATE to be exact) */
    	WORD wRichEditVersion = GetRichEditVersion();
    	if(wRichEditVersion)
    		if(wRichEditVersion) == RICH_1_0)
    			hwndEdit = CreateWindowEx(WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE,
    	 			TEXT("RichEdit"), TEXT(""),
    				WS_VISIBLE | WS_CHILD | WS_BORDER | ES_MULTILINE,
    				half, area.top, half, area.bottom,
    				hwndParent, (HMENU)(ID_REDIT), hInst, NULL);
    		else
    			hwndEdit = CreateWindow(
    	 			RICHEDIT_CLASS, TEXT(""),
    				WS_VISIBLE | WS_CHILD | WS_BORDER | ES_MULTILINE,
    				half, area.top, half, area.bottom,
    				hwndParent, (HMENU)(ID_REDIT), hInst, NULL);
    	else
    		hwndEdit = CreateWindowEx(WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE,
     				WC_EDIT, TEXT(""),
    				WS_VISIBLE | WS_CHILD | WS_BORDER | ES_MULTILINE,
    				half, area.top, half, area.bottom,
    				hwndParent, (HMENU)(ID_REDIT), hInst, NULL);
    	/* more code...*/
    Okay, GetRichEditVersion() determines the version as anyone can plainly see. If I don't attempt to load msftedit.dll I can get a rich edit 3.0 control up and running, however, when I do use msftedit.dll I won't get an edit control. Can anyone set me straight here?

    It amazes me that given all the documentation there is out there this problem wasn't easier to solve. I was looking through richedit.h and found that I should be using MSFTEDIT_CLASS for my class name not RICHEDIT_CLASS. Maybe this will help someone else someday.

    Hi, can you help me. Also, I have problem with RichEdit 4.1 in Visual C++ 6.0.

    How can I Create RichEdit 4.1, use the Justify Alignment and hyphenate some words on the end of the line?

    Thanks, Goran
