I use a form as a pop.  I pass some test to display on the form.  If I use a label, it looks correct.  When I use a multiline textbox it strings all the text together without line breaks.  How can I fix this?  

Public Sub New(ByVal DisplayText As String)
        MyBase.New()

        'This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.
        InitializeComponent()

        'Add any initialization after the InitializeComponent() call


        strFormText = DisplayText

        TextBox1.Text = DisplayText
        Label1.Text = strFormText

       
         End Sub

What does DisplayText contain for line breaks? Is it just LF or CRLF? Where does it come from?

It's output from a linux server.  I have the linux server run unix2dos command before it's passed to my application.  The display looks fine on the label for the popup, but does not work for the textbox.  I just thought they would work the same.  I was hopping to use a mutiline textbox so I could use a scroll bar if needed.

This did it:


 TextBox1.Text = DisplayText.Replace("\n", Environment.NewLine)

Any idea why?
