    newlines in textBox

    hi:
    If I want to show the text in each line in the text, something like
    textbox1.text = "text1\ntext2;
    and it looks like:
    text1
    text2

    it didn't work for textbox but messageBox,
    so is there any format to do this?
    thank you

    Did you make it a multiline text box?

    Instead of setting \n in your textbox, you can also add to the Lines-Property. For both variants, Multiline must be true.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
