Hello folks!

I'n my attempt to better my understanding of network programming i've been writing a simple chat server and client. It's all working nicely and without problems, but now i want to expand.

For displaying text i'm using a disabled edit control, thus linebreaking and scrolling is done automatically for me. I've also managed to change the color of my text inside the control, but now i want to use different colors for different messages. And to my understanding, a simple edit control won't suffice. I could probally start using a rich edit control, but that feels abit overkill. So, what are my options? I've thought of using openGL to draw the text-window, even though it would give me awesome control, it's even more overkill! :(

I would go for a rich edit control, it's not overkill at all for displaying text with different colors or styles.
