If the lines are separated with the standard vbCrLf, simply do

linecount = Ubound(Split(Text1.Text, vbCrlf)) + 1

That does not apply if there are multiple lines because one or more are too long and restart on another line

I don't actually see an answer here for when you can't use vbCrLf so here goes.


Option Explicit
Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" _
(ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, lParam As Any) As Long

Private Const EM_GETLINECOUNT = &HBA



    Dim LineCount As Long
    
    '-- Get the line count of Textbox
    LIneCount = SendMessage(Text1.hwnd, EM_GETLINECOUNT, 0, 0)
