Is it possible to create a text field in a window template that wraps text?

Using WinEd, I can only get text that's left aligned and goes past the field boundary.

Not as standard.

I believe there's a toolbox gadget to achieve this, and that might be the best approach. (I don't use the toolbox, so I've no idea what it's called or where to find it - I've a feeling it's not part of the standard toolbox and actually something that a third party produced.)

The other approach would be to write your own solution - which, if you aren't using the toolbox and don't wish to start, is what you'd have to do.

Toolbox gadget, I'll do some Googling, thanks.
