Hello, I programatically create the spinner and its' edit box (with the CreateWindow(..) function), but I can't find a way to use float/double data type instead of integers. How can I do that?

You could store the number internally as an integer, then display it as a multiple of a fixed float value.

For example, the range could be from -50 to 50, but displayed as -1.00 to 1.00 (controlled in multiples of 0.02)

Yeah, that would be one way of doing, probably the most simple one. So floats aren't supported?

Nope. You'll have to create the buddy window yourself, and handle the appropriate messages so it displays a real value, but interfaces with the spinner control with integer values.
