After entering more than 2184 characters in single line Editbox, the text become invisible. If one character is deleted, then text become visible.. You can reproduce the issue by setting the font of CEdit with following parameters

Font face :Arial

Size : > 19

Bold: false

Then copy and paste text more than 2184 characters

Note: The above issue doesn't exists in WinXP SP3

Thanks for the report. We have investigated and found that this is not related to MFC, but appears to be an issue with the Edit control itself. If you have further questions I suggest you ask on the Windows SDK forum: .

This seems like a windows bug, we cann't confirm the development will accept this issue. thanks

This seems to be an OS issue related (maybe) to the font smoothing setting. You can find more comments on this thread:
