Hi there,

Is there any ways of of making a line break when entering text/data in
TEXTAREA field (using the enter/return key to seperate the lines) and to
have it viewed with LABEL field without squezing all into a single continous
line. I know there is a limitation because of HTML, but is there any easy
way around it using CodeCharge with ASP?.

See the example below.

This how I would like it:

Technical Specifications.
Pentium III 800
Intel 815 motherboard
128MB Memory
Onboard Creative Sound


Rather then this, when viewed with label field;
Technical SpecificationsPentium III 800Intel 815 motherboard128MB
MemoryOnboard Creative Sound


Thanks.

Phantom

Yes, you can do this form with label. You will simple need to use
events mechanism to replace newline symbols with <br> tags.
Please see our forum example : viewthread page , form MessageText, "Form
properties" events tab , "Show event"

Thanks for you help,
It works great.. but I have another issue regarding this matter. If I have
multiple codes for several fields with in the same form, the additional
fields don't work. They either show up with the same problem or nothing at
all... is there another way out of this problem?

BTW. Your support is excelllllllent! - quick and relilable.

Cheers
phantom

Eg.
fldmessage1=replace(fldmessage1,vbCRLF,"<br>")
fldmessage2=replace(fldmessage2,vbCRLF,"<br>")
fldmessage3=replace(fldmessage3,vbCRLF,"<br>")

The only problem that I see know is that besides adding code
to your events , you shouldn't forget to strip tohtml()
function from appropriate code , like
setvar "message2",tohtml(fldmessage2)
should be stripped to
setvar "message2",fldmessage2
