    how can i get the exact format of the inputted text in textbox [textmode=multiline]. next line is not recognized and is replaced with just a space.

    my idea here is to replace it with <br \>, but i don't know the chr() value of next line. but if there is another workaround, it's fine.

    any advice will be appreciated, thanks.

    Back in my vbscript days I uses to use a code block for getting the newline. But it doesn't work on dot.net lol :-) But I know you can use this.

    Here I have a textbox

    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" TextMode="MultiLine"></asp:TextBox>

     And whenever the user is typing text and hits the enter key I can get that and replace it with a <br />

    Label1.Text = TextBox1.Text.Replace(Environment.NewLine, "<br />");

    Hope this helps
