I have a validation message that I am trying to display in a Visual Basic label.  The message has multiple lines.

Code:
"test1" & Environment.NewLine & "test2" & vbCrLf & "test3"

When I try to display the message all of the text is on 1 line instead of 2.

How do I display multi-lines?

Thanks,

Dan

It's not apparent in AndyAinscow's screenshot, but make sure you set the AutoSize property of the Label to False in order to be able to resize it.
