\n in MsgBox (multiline)

2 posts in this topic

Hi, in the beginning I must say, that I`m a totally new in AutoIt, and almost new in language Visual C++, which I believe to be used in AutoIt in most of examples. I`m really sorry if this is next stupid question, but I spent few hours now looking for solution for my simple problem.

As You can imagine I was writing a script to repeat a task.

I`ve added a simple security-check - when user press Escape, script is skipped to the ending, and there is a MsgBox with text like "Script was skipped. *** X of Y repeats have been finished.", where *** is a place where I want to use equivalent of C++ "\n" command. I used it, but MsgBox had been containing literally "Script was skipped. \n X of Y repeats have been finished." in one line.

So the question is, how can I place second part of this text into next line. Thanks in advance.

PS. I`m really sorry for my horrible language, but I`m doing my best. If You can`t understand something I will do my best to explain it.

Use @CRLF or @CR or @LF to initiate a new line in the message for the msgbox.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
