Wrap text ina MsgBox?

5 posts in this topic

If I have a lot of text to display in a MsgBox, how to I make it wrap or insert a return at the end of a line, at the moment I get one long box with all the text on one line.

thanks.

Put " & @LF & " in between the word you want to display in the next line...!!

something like this:

$test= "This" & @LF & "is" & @LF & "a Test message."
MsgBox (0, "0", $test)

And if you dont want the text to go for ever inn one line do this.

Msgbox(64,'Infobox with x# of lines.',  'Mytext goes here'&@CRLF& _
                    'someotherline of text'&@crlf& _
                    'someotherline of text'&@crlf& _
                    'someotherline of text'&@crlf& _
                    'someotherline of text'&@crlf& _
                    'someotherline of text'&@crlf& _
                    'someotherline of text'&@crlf& _
                    'someotherline of text'&@crlf& _
                    'someotherline of text'&@crlf& _
                    'someotherline of text')
