Visual C++ Edit only 500 char maximum length!

Maybe something in the MFC is setting the default max to 500 chars. Anyway to ignore the MFC CEdit stuff and just create a standard Edit control instead?

MFC just wraps around CreateWindow using EDIT as the control class. Setting the limit of the text just wraps around SendMessage using the limit length message id. So it would be whatever Windows limits the default EDIT control to. Should work fine with using 0 as the value for the length to let it max out to what Windows can handle though.
