Still valid as of today. mentioned in A3/Discord by R3vo and verified. upon checking and trying ' findDisplay 46 ctrlCreate ["ctrlEdit", -1]; ' Arma completely freezes and goes unresponsive.. OS shutdown with no crash reporting triggered. Windows 10 is also effected, is not limited to win7.

Is "ctrlEdit" a valid arguement? if so then then the crash is a problem, if its a invalid class for this then the issue is its being allowed. either way there an issue, but beyond me to know or pick which.

Would be nice if this command would throw like a "Wrong ENUM value" instead of freezing the game. Basically every typo would kill the game instantly. In addition, the BIKI page should be updated with all possible controls.

I'd expect "ctrlEdit" should be a valid argument, since using "ctrlEditMulti" works.
"ctrlEditMulti" is a child of "ctrlEdit", with style = 16;

ctrlEdit is valid, just internal bug. FIx should be in next dev branch
