How to force a new line in text box - Excel userform

Hello,

I have a userform that I would like to display a string of text in. I have built the string using the code below:

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Dim rngComments As Range
Dim strcombuild As String
Set rngComments = Range("Comments")
strcombuild = ""
    With Me
        .CommandButton1.Caption = "Close"
    End With

For Each rw In rngComments.Rows
        i = 1
        If rw.Columns(1).Value = TaskID Then
        
            For Each cl In rw.Cells.Columns
                    If i = 1 Then
                        strcombuild = strcombuild & rw.Cells(1, i).Value
                    Else
                        strcombuild = strcombuild & " - " & rw.Cells(1, i).Value
                    End If
                    i = i + 1
            Next cl
            strcombuild = strcombuild & "." & vbNewLine
        End If
Next rw
Me.Textbox1 = strcombuild
End Sub

Open in new window


When I set Textbox1=strcombuild, it just displays one continuous line of text with like a paragraph marker where the carriage / line return should be.

When I assign Label1=strcombuild it displays fine.

I would like to have the text displayed on multiple lines in Textbox1 - any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Craig

Just set the .MultiLine property of your textbox to true, and then your vbnewline will be represented in the textbox.

See attached.
