I have a textbox that I want the user to be able to edit the code without the html tags showing.

Is this possible?  When the user created the form I used:

TextBox1.Text.Replace(Environment.NewLine, "<br/>");

For storing the info with line breaks.  Now I want to convert it back for when they edit the info.

Thanks for any help.

Breaks are coded as \r\n

Use Replace("\n","<br/>")

HgoHias  Your code will does nothing when i us it.

Espavo  i get the following error when i use your code

"The name 'chr' does not exist in the current context"

If i put "" around it it charges the br to the chr(10)
