Is there an easy way to insert line breaks in a win32 api text box? It seems like it doesn't recognize/use line breaks per se. Is there some predefined function that will insert enough spaces to move the cursor to the next line? Thanks.

Enable multiline mode using the style 'ES_MULTILINE' (and possibly ES_WANTRETURN) add a CRLF pair (\r\n) to your string where you want the break; it does work.
