Moved to the appropriate AutoIt General Help and Support forum, as the Developer General Discussion forum very clearly states:


General development and scripting discussions.

Do not create AutoIt-related topics here, use the AutoIt General Help and Support or AutoIt Technical Discussion forums.

You could GUIRegisterMsg $WM_COMMAND and in the WinProc on the $EN_CHANGE notification, calculate the number of characters between @CRLF and add it when necessary.

Since The control doesn't have the ability to wrap words. I wrote this to wrap words after the text is pulled from the control.

Func wordWrap( $string, $linelength=79)
   ;Wrap Lines on spaces
    $chopped = StringSplit($string," ")
    $thisLine = ""
    $paragraph = ""
    for $i = 1 to UBound($chopped) -1
        if Not (StringRight($thisLine,1) = " ") Then
            $thisLine = $thisLine & " "
        $thisLine = $thisLine & $chopped[$i] & " "
        if (StringLen($thisLine) > $linelength) Then
            $paragraph = $paragraph & $thisLine & @CRLF
            $thisLine = ""
    $string = $paragraph & $thisLine
    Return $string
