As you can see I am passing Eval fields to C# code behind to try to format text to be on seperate lines but not working:
 
<telerik:GridTemplateColumn UniqueName="Edit" HeaderText="Post" ReadOnly="true" Display="false" ItemStyle-VerticalAlign="Top" HeaderStyle-Width="600px" >
                                        <ItemTemplate>
                                            <%# RadGrid2_Post( Eval("CREATEDON").ToString(), Eval("USERNAME").ToString(),Eval("APPROVED").ToString(),Eval("BODY").ToString())%>
                                        </ItemTemplate>
                                    </telerik:GridTemplateColumn> 
 
Code behind:
 
protected string RadGrid2_Post(string postedON, string postedBy, string approved, string body)
    {
        string s = "<b>Posted On:</b> " + postedON + "\r\n\r\n" +
                      "<b>Posted By:</b> " + postedBy + "\r\n\r\n" +
                      "<b>Approved?:</b> " + approved + "\r\n\r\n" +
                      "<b>Body:</b> " + body;
 
        return s;
              
    }
