asked on

Textbox multiline property

I have a textbox that has multiline property set.
I output my data here from another page.

When it loads Id like the textbox to treat the new data as a new line not a continuation text or append.
Each new data entered should start with
*

on my page load event, I have this code..

If dr("CommentsHist") is system.dbnull.value = false then
   textBox1.text = dr("CaommentsHist")
endif

Currently since textbox1 has mulitiline, each new data entered just appends it to previous data.

I prefer new line created everytime.

I think you made a typo on your original question, but I left it as you wrote it, just in case ;)
You could also append the Environment.Newline to the data coming from the other webpage.

Looks like the data is coming from SQL. In SQL you can use following to add new line to end of string

Select Col1, Col2, Col3 + Char(10) + Char(13) As Col3 From ...
Well, it looked like the data was coming from a DataTable from another page and put into a session variable or querystring to pass to this page. So that's why I mentioned tacking on the Environment.Newline to the variable or querystring that was being passed in.
2 issues,
1.when I do the Add it adds the textbox but retains the information that loads on page_load event.
Is it possible that when it adds a new textbox , it is blank.

2. when I start to type with a number say 1992,1998 , there is is no ","
at the start of line however when I type text, it adds the "," in a new line though...
the comments helped in finding a solution.
