Try using a \r\n they are the carriage return and new line escape characters.  So txtlinkDetails.Text="hello\r\n";

vbCRLF doesn't work ? it's the constanst for \r\n
\r\n are for c#

txtlinkDetails.Text="hello" & vbCRLF & "How" & vbCRLF &"r" & vbCRLF & "u"

Can you use the System.Enviroment.Newline property so it would be something like:


txtlinkDetails.Text="hello" & System.Enviroment.Newline & "How" & System.Enviroment.Newline &"r" & System.Enviroment.Newline  & "u"

Text = Text.Replace(" ", vbCrLf)

If what you're writing is HTML maybe you should replace vbCrLf with "<BR>" as in

Text = Text.Replace(" ", "<BR>")

vbCrLf should work.

Are you sure you have TextMode=Multiline (and runat=server) for the Text Box?
