Is it possible to add a carriage return to a ListViewSubItem?  I want to show the last user of a file and the last updated date, but to save space I want to put the user above the date.

In this article there is a comment that discusses new lines (comment "Multi-line Text Box Extention"):

I am not pretty sure it will help but you could give it a shot.

This article is useful with the tip for adjusting the height of the subitem.  But I'm still not sure how to add a carriage return in code.   Given 2 strings - s1 and s2 - to be added as a subitem via ListViewItem.SubItems.Add, this does not work: s1 + "\r" + s2.  This does not work:  s1 + "\n" + s2.

I decided to use 2 separate ListViewItems.  The second will have just the "second line subitems".
