Populating a ListBox at runtime


I have just stumbled across a problem populating an edit box from a text file. The problem is the edit control has a maximum limit of 512 characters, which in my case can be easily reached.

So I have two questions:

1. Can this character limit be bypassed or exended (setting the Max. Length property to a higher number didn't work)?
2. If not, do you think a Listbox would be a better option and how would I proceed? I have been trying to use the instructions from here, but that didn't help much, as I want to populate the listbox from a text file.

A Text Area is not an option because I need a scrollbar.

Thank you in advance for your help.

If you can use an RTF file, there's the similar no-guarantees stunt described here: [thread]166696[/thread].
