     Use Windows to word break captions. Display text at zero, 90 & 270 degree rotations. Neat method of wordbreaking unicode text using Windows own wordbreaking algorithms vs trying to create your own. Added several properties to mimic DrawText to include clipping, accelerator keys, and more. Project nearly 100% complete. The API created unicode textbox is not subclassed, so it isn't controlled by the project, however, you can type and cut/copy/paste as needed. Next major addition will be a class version. Hmmm, a usercontrol-less, class-based unicode textbox would be a nice project ;)

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
