YOu have an example here http://www.developersdomain.com/vb/codedownloads/textboxfeatures.zip

1) MsgBox LineAt(Text1, CurrentLinePos(Text1))
2) Dim ss As String
    ss = LineAt(Text1, CurrentLinePos(Text1))
    Text1.Text = Replace(Text1.Text, ss, "[0:32]" & ss)
If you use text box, set Mulyiline property on true, or you can use Richtext Box control
Multiline property
