Hi, how do I put a text in an edit field inside a dialog box without a selection? If I try SetDlgItemText, the text is always highlighted. And do I have to use "13, 10" for a new line (I''d like to use the normal "\n")? Thanks in advance Darkening

First off, are you creating the window by hand, or using the resource editor (I assume you are using VC++).

Here's my WM_CREATE code, and it doesn't highlight the text I put in (also puts multiline).

hDlg = CreateDialog(hInst,MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDD_MYDIALOG),hWnd,(DLGPROC)DlgWndProc);
SetDlgItemText(hDlg,IDC_EDIT,"Hello World\r\nJust testing");

Yes, because of Windows, you have to use \r\n to make a newline.
