If you mean to add this text to the title bar of a Window then you cannot do it that way. The only way would be to do custom drawing of all the non-client area of the Window. However, it is still not clear exactly what you are trying to do.

Although I do not understand completely what you mean, I assume the following:
You want to show multi line text in an MFC TextBox?
In this case you must set the multi line property as described in this article Using the CEdit control[^]
The default behaviour is single line.
