This answer I found here, but it seem to work for some and not for others,  am I missing some maybe a directive of something?

the code works if i use strings only but if i try to use the the chr(10)

string j = s.Replace("<br/>", chr(10));

I get error:
The name 'chr' does not exist in the current context


Thanks for any help!

Chr() is a legacy VB function so it will work in VB.Net apps...
You should be able to use the newline escape sequence of "\n":
    string j = s.Replace("<br/>", "\n");
