    Question RichEdit Not Working!

    Ok. I was working with RICHEDIT_CLASS when I found a problem. I do InitCommonControls(); but when I try to do something like:


    CreateWindowEx(
    0,
    RICHEDIT_CLASS,
    "",
    WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE,
    10, 10,
    400, 150,
    hwnd,
    (HMENU)1,
    hInst,
    NULL
    );


    It says RICHEDIT_CLASS undeclared...first use this function. How do I use RICHEDIT_CLASS?

    include richedit.h

    #include <richedit.h>
    Sometimes, the farthest point from the center is the center itself.

    and don't forget to put:

    LoadLibrary("RichEd32.dll");

    in your code, or else it won't work.

    Still not working...

    I tried both and got these:

    Code:
              hwndEdit = CreateWindow ("richedit", NULL,
                             WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_HSCROLL | WS_VSCROLL |
                                       WS_BORDER | ES_LEFT | ES_MULTILINE |
                                       ES_AUTOHSCROLL | ES_AUTOVSCROLL,
                             0, 0, 90, 90, hwnd, (HMENU) ID_VIEW,
    						 hInst, NULL);
    I always find using the #defines are more annoying than just typing in the string yourself

    And I don't know wether you need LoadLibrary in DJGPP, but you do in MSVC. and now you don't need to include the extra header file.
