I am developing a network chat application, I am using Winapi, my main window is a dialog (created from a .rc file).
I am looking into a way of doing an text box where my outuput text can be like this:
Welcome to ##### chat server!
Person1 says: Hi folks, what's up?
Person2 says: Hey... that's Person1!
*Person2 pokes Person1.*
Person1 says: Hey!
I'm using a simple EDIT TEXT control ATM. I've been trying to implement a RICH EDIT CONTROL but it seems to be very hard to do...
Anyone know of a good way to obtain the result in the quote.. should i use some kind of control or window class that I'm missing?
Any information is welcome, a simple demonstration code is more than welcome :)
