Web Forms :: Converting Line Breaks From A Multiline Textbox To Html

Apr 6, 2010

Here's some pseudo-code as to how I'm converting line breaks in a multi-line textbox into the html equivalent for storage into a DB.

Server.HtmlEncode(Trim(TextBox.Text.Replace(Environment.NewLine, "<br />")))

When I trace the variable while debugging I notice that when using Internet Explorer 7, the text is parsed correctly from the text box and <br /> tags are inserted appropriately.

However when the page is ran in Firefox or Chrome, the line breaks are not converted.

I have a web form in which anyone can fill out the information and i recieve the information.

On my Asp.Net GridView I am binding a textbox to a field in SQL. Sometimes the content of the textbox is more than 1 line and I

need to show only the LAST line. How can I do that? Here is part of my code...notice that I use Rows=1 on purpose so that I am able to show only 1 line but I need it to scroll all the way down and have it show only the last line of the whole content:

<asp:TextBox ID="txtBoxComments" runat="server" MaxLength="5000" ReadOnly="true" Rows="1" Text='<%# Eval("Comments") %>'
TextMode="MultiLine" Width="100%" Wrap="true" />

C# - Preserve Line Breaks In Textbox?

Sep 24, 2010

I have a multiline textbox whose .Text property get saved in an SQL 2008 DB. When I submit the textbox, I loose the returns. How do I handle this?

I've used Enviroment.Newline() to do some html conversion stuff, but I've never ran into this specific problem.

Edit: Nevermind, it was working just fine, but I was replacing " " incorrectly. Stupid mistake. I have to convert the " " to <p> tags. I've done this before, but if anybody wants to answer, I'll mark their answer as correct.

HTML - Line Breaks In Title Element / How To Optimize SEO Readability On Websites

Apr 29, 2010

I'm trying to optimize SEO readability on our websites and one issue I've come across is ASP.NET butchering the title element of my MasterPage. Entered as such in my MasterPage (manually reformatted to remove line breaks caused by the <% %> tags):

<title><asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="TitleContent" runat="server" /> - <%=WebsiteSettings.WebsiteName %></title>

This is the output I receive:


As you can see ASP.NET is adding preceding and trailing line breaks where the <asp:ContentPlaceHolder /> is substitute becaused Visual Studio auto-formats <asp:Content /> to start and end with a line break. Obviously, this can be prevented in the Visual Studio formatting options, but this is not ideal because I only would want to remove that behavior for the TitleContent placeholder and not the rest.

Is there any way I can ensure my Title is trimmed before it is rendered? I am using MVC so code-behind is not an acceptable option.

Multiline Textbox - Automatically Break To Next Line After 100 Characters

May 2, 2012

I've had an "interesting" request .

1) Is it possible, in a multiline textbox, to automatically break to the next line after 100 characters?
2) If not, is it possible to parse the enter key as entered by the user to break the line in the code behind?

Some additional info:

The person requesting this does not think that the user should use a single line textbox limited to 100 characters and click an "Add Line" button to store that field in a table.

The person requesting this is of the belief that a DEC Alpha-based system that currently does this can be replicated on the web.

Multi Line Text Box With Line Breaks

Jul 28, 2010

I insert a text box, change the parameters to multi line and then pass the string to sql. Users insert comments etc, using line breaks, however because I just pass this as a string the line breaks are not there when they view the text box after input. Example: Here is a well formatted comment. as I typed in the text box today. Inserted in to sql as a string, returns this on select:

C# - Creating Multiline Textbox Using Html.Helper Function?

Feb 16, 2011

I usually find my answers at stackoverflow but this one has bugged me for a couple of days now. I am trying to create a multiline Textbox using ASP.NET MVC with the following code.

<%= Html.TextBox("Body", null, new { TextBoxMode = "MultiLine", Columns = "55px", Rows = "10px" })%>

It just shows up a single line fixed sized textbox. on the other hand

<asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="Body" TextMode="MultiLine" Columns="55" Rows="10"></asp:TextBox>

renders the right view, but in the controller's post method with formCollection named form


returns a null value.

Web Forms :: Line Breaks In Dynamically Built Placeholder Control?

Feb 17, 2010

Each "something is due" message is loaded into a unique label. Therefore the Placeholder could have several labels in them. For clarity's sake I'd like them separated by line breaks.

C# - Displaying Line Breaks In XML With XSLT?

Jun 21, 2010

I have a problem with my XML that I am trying to display on my ASP.NET page. What I would like to do is display it on a multi-line so I have an XML file that looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="News.xslt" ?>
<date>20th June 2010</date>
<detail>Detail line 1.


When it displays the first detail line everything is on the same line. I've done some digging about and I have tried the following:

xml:space="preserve" in the XSLT file in the XML file<br />

I've even tried leaving it as it is.

I am using Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2010. The control I am using is the XML control under the standard tab, and the language I am using is C#.
