Line feed a text box using virtual keyboard

I'm building a touch screen system that doesn't use a standard keyboard but instead uses a virtual keyboard on the screen.  I'm having no luck getting the enter key to drop down to the next line in my standard text box.  

I've tried using chr(10) but all that does is display the | character.

Any help would be great...

P.S.  Using a regular keyboard is not an option :)

Make sure that the text box's MultiLine property is set to true, and use vbCrLf instead of Chr(10) maybe?

Hope this helps!
