Don't know if this is the best way to do it, but this is how I got things to

This list names in a static scrolling EF.

      windowActive% = WINDOW(_activeWnd)
      WINDOW OUTPUT _staticScrollEFWnd
      AUTOCLIP = _False
      EDIT FIELD -_staticScrollEF,,,_noFramed
      EDIT$(_staticScrollEF) = ""
      EDIT TEXT _monaco,9,0
      FOR x = 0 TO elemsToCk%
        d$ = nameToPutInEF$(x)
        CALL TEINSERT(@d$ + 1,LEN(d$),WINDOW(_efHandle))
      teH& = TEHANDLE(WINDOW(_staticScrollEF))
      CALL INVALRECT (teH&..viewRect%)
      AUTOCLIP = _True
      EDIT FIELD -_staticScrollEF,,,_statNoFramed
      EDIT FIELD 0
      WINDOW OUTPUT windowActive%

In this one, I'm inserting a name in a list in its proper alphabetical
position. The window has a staticScrollEF and some other non-static EFs.

    EDIT FIELD _staticScrollEF
      LONG IF sortThis$ < namesToAlpha$(elem) OR elem >= prevNumOfEntries%
        startPost% = lenTot%: endPost% = lenTot% + LEN(placeThis$)
        SETSELECT startPost%,startPost%
        CALL TEINSERT(@placeThis$ + 1,LEN(placeThis$),WINDOW(_efHandle))
        in$ = "yes"
        lenTot% = lenTot% + alphaStrLength%(elem)
      END IF
    UNTIL in$ = "yes" OR elem >= prevNumOfEntries%
  AUTOCLIP = _True
  EDIT FIELD _nonStaticEF
Here I'm appending a name in a static scroll EF window.

  nowActive% = WINDOW(_activeWnd)
  WINDOW OUTPUT _wndWithStaticScrollEF
  AUTOCLIP = _False
  EDIT FIELD _staticScrollEF
  EDIT TEXT _geneva,9,0
  CALL TEINSERT(@d$ + 1,LEN(d$),WINDOW(_efHandle))
  AUTOCLIP = _True
  WINDOW OUTPUT nowActive%

Hope this helps. If not I can send you the code to a program I'm working on
and you can dig thru the mess. It has four or five static scrolling EF in it.
