the only thing that I could think of is to handle the notification code when I have inserted max amount of characters and to resize the edit control, therefore allowing me to enter some more, but that doesn't work, since there is no notification code for this - I tried EN_ERRSPACE and EN_MAXTEXT, but none of those are working... and yes, I have ES_AUTOHSCROLL, however the edit control is multiline with wantreturn, so I can subclass when the user presses RETURN key... any suggestions?
Perhaps instead of bumping and saying "it doesn't work" without further information, you could supply a minimal, compilable code sample that exhibits the behavior you don't want but that you believe should exhibit the behavior you do want.
You might want to also move this thread to the correct forum (Windows Programming).
@cire if u'd take a look at the project u'd notice a subclass callback for the edit control, which has FEW lines, also I described the problem, in my opinion, perfectly and provided every information needed
also this thread was in windows programming till yesterday, when I moved it to the general c++, since the thread is old almost 2 weeks already and there are no replies, since windows programming section looks DEAD
edit: here's simplified project, I have found out why it's not working - when I use CENTER style, it wont be able to scroll the text, however it works just fine without the center

I'm not going to download and browse through your zip file to find a FEW lines of code. If only a few lines of code are needed, then post them. I suspect that your project doesn't reflect the changes and failures you've made since this thread began, so I'd only have your "it didn't work" to go by with regards to the link I posted earlier.

Your thread was garnering no responses because you aren't making it easy for anyone to help you, not because the windows section is DEAD.
