Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Easy CR/LF Padding

When I write text in message boxes, labels, and so on, and I need to include a carriage return/line feed, I use this function, passing it the number of CR/LFs I need. This saves a lot of typing and looking up of ASCII values:
Sub cmdDelete_Click()

	msg = "Are you sure you want " & _
		"to delete this item?" & NL(2) & "Press OK"
	rc = MsgBox(msg, 4 + 32 + 256, "Confirm Delete")
end sub

Function NL(num_lines As Integer) As String
'	This function returns a New Line 
'	character for the number of times 
'	passed to the function.

	Dim msg As String
	Dim i As Integer

	For i = 1 To num_lines
		msg = msg & Chr(13) & Chr(10)

	NL = msg
End Function
