try this:

string labelText =  string.Format("This is line 1.{0}This is line 2.", Environment.NewLine);

label1.Text = labelText;

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Hi newbieweb;

use the \n when you want to begin a new line.

label1.Text = "This is the first line \nThis is a second line\nThis is the Third line";
