The problem is while entering the information in this text box, if anyone used enter line or different line or any kind of formatting, as a result i don't get the formatted page or with lines. I see only a paragraph which is very difficult to read and understand.

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

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.
Is there any way to allow page breaks to be used in a multi-line textbox control. I would like the text below to be inserted into my database, so when displayed in a label its not all in one paragraph. Ex:
some text to be inserted in <br/> some more text to be inserted in <br/>
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):
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.
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.
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:
Here is a well formatted comment.as I typed in the text boxtoday. How do I insert the line breaks in the string from a textbox?
I have an xml file as shown below. In that the MailBody has contents stored in tabular form. In that table I have a column 'Description' which needs to preserve line breaks and paragraph format if user input is in paragraphs.
At present that column displays data as one whole paragraph even if user enters data with line breaks by Enter key.
I have a Placeholder control on Employee Main Menu. Several SQL Data sources are run at page load in order to notify employees that something is due. 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. However I understand from reading a previous forum item that "< /br>" are ignored. How can I embed a line break when PlaceHolder_Msg.Controls.Count > 1
One column in my GridView has the format 1-2345 (one digit followed by a dash followed by four digits. Normally, everything looks OK, but sometimes the other data in my GriView will expand to two or more "lines" in the same row of data. Unfortunately this causes my cell to look like the following:
This looks really really awful and I need to fix it. You know how in HTML there is the non-breaking space symbol? Well I want a non-breaking dash symbol.
