I've written a program that interacts with Outlook but I'm having trouble getting linefeeds into the body of the text.  The 2 pertinent lines of the program are:
mail:= 'mailto:'+gmail+'?subject=' +sub + '&body='+body+'&cc='+gmailcc;

and
ShellExecute(Handle,'open',PChar(mail),nil,nil,SW_SHOWNORMAL);

where :
gmail, gmailcc are addresses
sub is just some text
body is the message of the email

My question is how to put linefeeds in this message

you can insert '%0A' in your body string where you want a line return

This will convert all 'normal' ret line codes with it
body:=StringReplace(body,#13#10,'%0A',[rfReplaceAll]);

Use '%0D%0A' as newline string.

body := 'Line1'+'%0D%0A'+'Line2';

Open in new window
