Wireguard Windows tunnel editing does not draw correctly with vertical scroll down

When I edit my tunnel setting that has multiple peers and input keys
with vertical scroll down,
the inputted characters are not shown correctly.
It looks like the old contents remain.

Without vertical scroll down the inputted characters are shown correctly.

It seems EM_SETCHARFORMAT and RedrawWindow don't play nicely together.

I use Wireguard-windows amd64 0.4.5.

I've found that adding window hide/show around EM_SETCHARFORMAT seems
to fix the redraw issue.
Here is a patch.
