I found the solution - an edit control with READONLY MULTILINE VSCROLL, which gives word-wrap and a vertical scrollbar. Exactly what I was after.

Hmm, I might have found a solution, a ScrollBar control. Seems complicated for such a trivial problem though ...

Hi, I'm looking for an advice to a very simple problem. I need to display a text file containing just that, text. First I tried using an Edit control in READONLY mode but quickly realised that this control doesn't have a word wrap capability, so the user will be required to manually scroll left-right in order to read the text. So then I tried to use a staticText control which can do word wrap, but this control doesn't have the capability to scroll the text up and down. So what's the solution to this trivial task?
