CEDIT Mnemonic - Create Multi-Line Text Edit Control

Syntax

'CEDIT'(id,x,y,w,h,title,flags)

Description

The 'CEDIT' mnemonic creates a special multi-line text editing control. The control holds one or more lines of text, called paragraphs, each of which may occupy one or more physical lines, depending on the "wrap" setting. If the text is limited to one line, use the EDIT Mnemonic - Create An Edit Control instead. The 'CEDIT' mnemonic is available in Visual PRO/5 Rev. 2.10 and above, and replaces the 'TXEDIT' mnemonic.
