Multiline edit control

Does FAR provide a multiline edit control? I couldn't find anything like that in the Encyclopedia, and come to think about it, the only place in FAR where I know of something like a multiline edit control is the user menu editor - but judging by its behavior, it's simply a set of several independent regular edits.

Nope. It was discussed in the Russian-language part of the forum a few years ago and one of FAR Team members even had some sketches of the implementation but that got nowhere IIRC. (Unfortunately, I failed to find these discussions now.)

Too bad. Oh well. Fortunately, in my current scenario, I can get by with a Listbox, a set of Texts, or a set of Edits. But it would be nice to have a full-fledged Multiline Edit.

pepak, as a workaround, you can open a custom-sized editor over your dialog and then use its text. The AltDescr plugin (for FAR 1.75) used this approach.
