Multiline TextBox multiple newline

I set value a multiline textbox like this.

textBox1.Text = "Line1\r\n\r\nLine2";

But, only one line space in output.

When I read the value of textbox, I read "Line1\r\nLine2";

Why ASP.NET not support more then one lineline character?

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi Jeet,

You need to set the textbox to be multiline, this can be done two ways:

In the control:

<asp:TextBox runat="server"
ID="MyBox" TextMode="MultiLine" Rows="10" />

Code Behind:

MyBox.TextMode = TextBoxMode.MultiLine;

MyBox.Rows = 10;

This will render as a <textarea>
