Empty lines in memo

Hi,

I have a problem with the memo component. When I add lines to it using memo1.lines.add('my line'); every new line has an empty line before it.

For example, if I do this:
memo1.lines.add('1');
memo1.lines.add('2');
memo1.lines.add('3');
I get this in the memo:
-----------------------------------
1                                            

2

3
-----------------------------------

What I want to know is how I can add those lines without having a space between them.
Any help is appreciated.

I also got the same as esoftbg,

What OS & Delphi version are you running?
Are you using custom style themes?

i agree, something is adding the space..

what happens if you type in

Memo1.Text:='1'+#$0d+#$0a+'2'+#$0d+#$0a+'3';

do you still get the same problem?

Sorry, I guess I wasnt specific enough.

The exact thing I do is this:

            Receive.Lines.Add('i:>->> ' + Send.Text);
            Receive.Lines.Add('o:<<-< Unknown command: ' + Send.Text);
            Send.Clear;

That adds the text in the Send memo to the Receive memo every time I press enter, and this is what I get if I do this a couple of times:

i:>->> fsdfds
o:<<-< Unknown command: fsdfds
i:>->>
gfdgfd
o:<<-< Unknown command:
gfdgfd

Somehow it adds everything on a new line...

I'm using Delphi 7 and WinXP, no custom themes...

This is if I do it more times:

i:>->> nvb
o:<<-< Unknown command: nvb
i:>->> hgvh

o:<<-< Unknown command: hgvh

i:>->>
gfdfd
o:<<-< Unknown command:
gfdfd
i:>->>
gdgfd
o:<<-< Unknown command:
gdgfd
i:>->> fsd'

o:<<-< Unknown command: fsd'

i:>->>
gdf
o:<<-< Unknown command:
gdf

What am I doing wrong?

Sent.Text has a #13#10,

You will need to remove it,

Send.Text:= StringReplace(Send.Text, #13#10, '', [rfReplaceAll]);

you could try *try*

replaceing any #13 's (returns) with nothing using something like

StringReplace(mystring, #13, '  ', [rfReplaceAll, rfIgnoreCase]);

That works, thanks :)

Do you two agree on splitting the points, or should I give them to the first answer?

that's a "quick" and dirty fix though...

do you have some code in the Memo events? like in the OnChange or something that would be adding those spaces?
