    Then adjust the size/position of your edit control to take into consideration any other controls, including your status bar, that occupy the client area of the parent window. Use GetClientRect to get the dimensions of the statusbar control.

    edit:
    >> Also, if a user selects a button to insert something, I'd use WM_GETTEXT and WM_SETTEXT, wouldn't I (to add the text the user selected)?<<

    Time to read up on edit controls.
    ok, thank you. That worked (also after I re-read the tutorial that I got on how to do the status bar).

    Thanks for the link also

    Ok, I've got the insert part working almost to what I need...here's what I have:
    Code:
    SendMessage(hEdit, EM_REPLACESEL, (WPARAM)true, (LPARAM)"'{STAMP 2.0}");
    <<EDIT: All I want to know is how do I put the cursor at (0,0) of the Edit Box (I'm guessin use the GetClientRect() function), then insert that >>

    Thanks. I saw that, but I didn't think it'd work (but it does).

    Ok, how would I test to see if a certain string is on line 1, and if so, replace it with another string (using the EM_REPLACESEL code)?
