Msgbox, Test on 2 lines?


Recommended Posts

I remember reading something about it but I could not find it. How do you get the text to appear on a 2 lines? for example:

Usermane: user

Password: pass

Anyhelp would be appreciated

MsgBox ( flag, "title", "text" [, timeout] )

Try this

MsgBox(4096, "Test", "This box will" & @CRLF & "time out in 10 seconds", 10)

It is only a messagebox. Using @LF or @CR for a new line should be adequate.

Thanks for the correction, I sometimes get carried away.

What's the difference between a @LF, a @CR and a @CRLF? I know that @CRLF is stronger but what are they used for?

@LF is used in *unix OSes. Chr(10)

@CR is used in MAC OSes. Chr(13)

@CRLF is used in Windows OSes. Chr(10) and Chr(13)

Messagebox usage does work with any of the above, and you will not copy text from a messagebox into any windows based editor to cause any problems.

@cr won't work because it just sets back the pointer to first char

@lf files up the line until there are no more free spaces

@crlf is a combination of these 2

You must be one of the few that use @CRLF for messageboxes. Everyone else uses @CR or @LF without problems.

MsgBox(0, '', 'line1' & @LF & 'line2' & @LF & 'line3')
MsgBox(0, '', 'line1' & @CR & 'line2' & @CR & 'line3')
MsgBox(0, '', 'line1' & @CRLF & 'line2' & @CRLF & 'line3')
