EM_FMTLINES message

Sets a flag that determines whether a multiline edit control includes soft line-break characters. A soft line break consists of two carriage returns and a line feed and is inserted at the end of a line that is broken because of wordwrapping.

Parameters

wParam

Specifies whether soft line-break characters are to be inserted. A value of TRUE inserts the characters; a value of FALSE removes them.

lParam

This parameter is not used.

Return value

The return value is identical to the wParam parameter.

Remarks

This message affects only the buffer returned by the EM_GETHANDLE message and the text returned by the WM_GETTEXT message. It has no effect on the display of the text within the edit control.

The EM_FMTLINES message does not affect a line that ends with a hard line break. A hard line break consists of one carriage return and a line feed.

Note

The size of the text changes when this message is processed.

Rich Edit: The EM_FMTLINES message is not supported.
