newline character

hi, we are using one of the cells as a multi-line text editor - it is only putting \n for the new line character - is there anyway to get it to do both \r\n ? thanks, Corinne

The default textbox is based on RichTextBox which does not handle \r\n too well. But you could derive a cell control from the OriginalTextBox which is based on TextBox, and in the renderer, override OnKeyDown and handle the Enter key yourself. Here is a little sample. WindowsApplication20_5007.zip

If you do not want to derive teh cell control, then you can just use the OriginalTextBox celltype and handle things in grid.CurrentCellControlKeyMessage this.gridControl1[2,2].CellType = "OriginalTextBox";
private void gridControl1_CurrentCellControlKeyMessage(object sender, GridCurrentCellControlKeyMessageEventArgs e)
	GridCurrentCell cc = this.gridControl1.CurrentCell;
	if(cc.RowIndex == 2 && cc.ColIndex == 2)
		Keys keyCode = (Keys) ((int)e.Msg.WParam) & Keys.KeyCode;
                //check for WM_KEYDOWN and Enter
		if(e.Msg.Msg == 256 && keyCode == Keys.Enter)
			GridOriginalTextBoxControl tb = cc.Renderer.Control as GridOriginalTextBoxControl;
			tb.SelectedText = "\r\n";
			e.Handled = true;
