you need to send this message to your edit control
invoke SendMessage,hEdit,EM_LIMITTEXT,8,0
the parameters are defined below.
  (HWND) hWnd,              // handle to destination window 
  EM_LIMITTEXT,             // message to send
  (WPARAM) wParam,          // text length
  (LPARAM) lParam          // not used; must be zero
