i most severely doubt that. there is no reason for doing so. windows 'controls', are simply specialized windows - the window procedure, which _you_ write, defines how the window looks, and acts. even the most 'basic' function - CreateWindow, surely would have been written in C.

it can be. depends on what you wish the control to do.

you would do as described above, create a window via the win32 api function CreateWindow, and write your window procedure to behave like a 'text box'.
if you couldn't, for example, use the win32 api, you'd have to create the necessary infrastructure - mostly an event system, and some basic graphics operations. then just build from there.
