InputBox and pasting multiple lines

Recommended Posts


Hello all,

I haven't found the answer in the help file or these forums, so if it's there and I missed it I apologize. I want to be able to paste something into the InputBox field, but sometimes what I paste would be more than one line long (maybe 20 lines sometimes). I've been able to make the input box wider, but not multiple lines. Is there a way can I do this using InputBox?




Here's and example of what I want to cut:

This is my test text.

Here's the second line of my test text.

and now I want to paste it into the InputBox, but the second line gets cut off using the code below

$bloop = 1

While $bLoop = 1

$desc = InputBox("Description",_

"Enter the ticket description and click OK",_


If @error = 1 Then

MsgBox(4096, "Error", "You pressed 'Cancel' - try again!")


$bLoop = 0

can i ask what you intend to do with with data you pasted into the input box....

a list in a gui sounds like a better idea.

I take it and paste it into a field. The program it's being pasted into is peregrine service center, which is a ticket-generating package (if that helps).
