Hi all,

I want copy the text (only the text but with newline) from a richtextbox to a textbox.

TextBox.Text = RichTextBox.Text

doesn't work properly.
e.g.
Richtext:

This is
a multiline
Text

will displayed in the textbox as one line (see attached Picture)

Thanks for your help

Gerhard

Have you set textbox Multiline property to true?

textBox1.Text = richTextBox1.Text.Replace("\n",Environment.NewLine);

You are getting linfeeds from the richtextbox control.  Use the following to replace the line feeds (ascii 10) with carriage return line feeds (asciee 10 and 13) into the textbox

TextBox1.Text = RichTextBox1.Text.Replace(Chr(10), Chr(13) + Chr(10))
