Gridview Update Strips Carriage Returns CHAR(13)

Hi All,

I am using a Gridview Control. I edit a record which uses a text box, when I save it it seems to strip out any carriage returns (CHAR(13)) that were there before.

I am simply using an Gridview and SQLDataSource Update command and the text box contains NVARCHAR data.

Interesting, when I first add this record using a web form, I use a similar multi line textbox and it preserves any carriage returns that are added.

Any ideas at all?

Thanks,

Rit

How do you test it?  In other words how do you know it is that character that is being stripped out at the save operation?

As soon as I have inserted a new record which preserves the carriage returns I then test the record by returning the data using the following SQL...

SELECT

REPLACE(PageDesc, CHAR(13), '<br />') AS PageDescHTML

FROM MyTable

Where ID = 50

After updating the same record within my Gridview control and run the same SQL, there are no '<br />' tags being replaced.

Thanks,

Rit

Hi AndyAinscow, strangely it was to do with the style tag I had applied to the Textbox which was causing it to ignore the line break.

The issue was related to CSS rather than Gridview binding.
