Multiple lines in Text box

Are we able to create multiple lines in a text box as opposed to creating a text box for each line of text to be displayed?

yes you can, just set the property Multiline of the textbox to true
to get a new line you can use \n

When typing in the text box how do you see the new new line? My screen just shows the continuation of the text I am typing with no line break present.

while typing you press the enter button on the keyboard
note; property Multiline must be checked for this


When I press enter it leaves the text box.

Multiline must be checked Like this :


Try this: textboxNewLine.aia (2.7 KB)



Im having trouble with this too. The text box has multiline checked off but when I try to paste the paragraph into the text box it goes off of the screen like this.

The view in the designer does not reflect the view on the phone 100%. Once you make the apk file or use the companion for testing, you'll be fine.

Switch on the HTML Format of the label and use <br> instead of /n
