    Try this..


    Code:
    hedwnd = CreateWindow("edit",NULL,WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_HSCROLL | WS_VSCROLL
    		  | WS_BORDER | ES_LEFT | ES_MULTILINE 
    		  | ES_AUTOHSCROLL | ES_AUTOVSCROLL,0,0,0,0, hwnd, (HMENU) 1,
    		  hinst , NULL);
    .. Under the WM_CREATE case.

    Then under WM_SIZE....

    Code:
    MoveWindow(hedwnd,0,0,LOWORD(lParam),HIWORD(lParam),TRUE);
    I haven't sat and tested as I'm sitting here, but if I remember correctly that should do the trick.
