TextOut problem

DC.TextOut(
GridRect.left,
GridRect.top + 18,
"Hello\nWorld"
)

I wanna make a TextOut on my screen, but it will only print "Hello#World"

and I can't get the newline to work in the TextOut() function. I want to make use of the \n feature in CString, does I have to use another function to do so, or how can I solve my problem so I can make a print like this

Hello
World ?

CB.

See:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnprogwin/html/ch17-01.asp

for a good tutorial on how to do text.  But the bottom line is that TextOut does not understand the newline (\n) character.  Use DrawText instead as it's a higher-level text output function that has greater capabilities.

use DrawText insatead of TextOut:

GetDC()->DrawText("hello\nWorld",CRect(100,100,150,200),0);

good luck

You'll have to use "\r\n" to issue a line break, e.g.

DC.TextOut(
GridRect.left,
GridRect.top + 18,
"Hello\r\nWorld"
);

One very rarely needs to use TextOut when working with MFC.  

Unless you are writing the low-level guts of a special control, you are much better off creating an Edit Control  or a Static Control and just using SetWindowText().
