Expandable Edit Control

Windows Mobile 6.5
4/19/2010

An expandable edit control is a combination of a Windows Embedded CE edit control and an associated Windows Embedded CE up-down control and is designed specifically for Windows Mobile Standard. An expandable edit control is expanded to full screen when the user presses the Action key. For example, on the Owner Information dialog box, the Notes control is an expandable edit control.

The standard Windows Embedded CE list box messages can be used to communicate with the edit control. For information about these messages, see List Boxes Messages.

The following table lists the Windows Embedded CE styles you apply to the up-down box control and edit control to create the expandable edit control. For an example of how to apply these styles, see How to Create an Expandable Edit Control.
