Inserting Control Characters

Question:
How do I insert carriage return (Chr(13)) and line feed (Chr (10)) in a text box at run-time?

Answer:
Just use the ampersand (&) and add them to the SelText property of the text box, and they will be inserted where the cursor is. For VB3.0 you can make a constant called vbCr and set it in code to be Chr(13) & Chr(10). VB 4.0 has that constant built-in. Your code to insert the text at the cursor would then be:

Text1.SelText = vbCr
The code to append it to the current contents of the textbox would be:
Text1 = Text1 & vbCr
