Hi

I have a RichTextBox that users populate using buttons with code like that below
What VB.net code do I use to loop through multiple lines?

  Private Sub btnAddRange_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnAddRange.Click
        Try
            Me.RichTextBox1.Text = Me.RichTextBox1.Text & " " & Me.txtRange.Text
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub

    Private Sub btnNewLine_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnNewLine.Click
        Try
            Me.RichTextBox1.Text = Me.RichTextBox1.Text & " " & vbCrLf
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub
