Trying to display only the last line of a Multiline TextBox

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi all,

On my Asp.Net GridView I am binding a textbox to a field in SQL. Sometimes the content of the textbox is more than 1 line and I
need to show only the LAST line. How can I do that? Here is part of my code...notice that I use Rows=1 on purpose so that
I am able to show only 1 line but I need it to scroll all the way down and have it show only the last line of the whole content:

  <asp:TextBox ID="txtBoxComments" runat="server" MaxLength="5000" ReadOnly="true" Rows="1" Text='<%# Eval("Comments") %>'
      TextMode="MultiLine" Width="100%" Wrap="true" />

 Thank you!

Reading MultiLine TextBox line by line

If I have a list of something in a MultiLine TextBox, one item per line, how do I then in turn read this? Right now TextBox.Text reads it all as one line. Lets say we have this: TextBox txtbx; At first I thought I could split the string on Environment.Newline, this doesn't work.  Error.Next I thought I could Replace(Environment.Newline,";").Split(";"); This didn't work either, Error.  Both gave cannot convert string to char[] exceptions. What I want to be able to do is read the input line by line and do something with each item one by one. Does anyone know how to do this?Thanks.

Issues with multiline textbox, javascript and IE


Hi All,

i have a requirement to embolden/italicise the selected  text in a textbox. the way it is implemented as is by using a js function which inserts <b> and </b> tags at the start and end of the selected text  for bold, and similarly <i> and </i> tags at the start and end of the selected text  for italics.

here is the code in c# (to add attributes to link buttons)

lkbBold.Attributes.Add("onclick", "AddHTMLTags('" + txtTitle.ClientID + "', 'B'); return false;");
lkbItalic.Attributes.Add("onclick", "AddHTMLTags('" + txtTitle.ClientID + "', 'I'); return false;");

the txtTitle is the id of the text box, which contains the selected text to be emboldend.

and here's the javascript method

function AddHTMLTags(textBoxId, format)
  var textComponent = document.getElementById(textBoxId);
  var selectedText;
  var textToReplace; 
  var content = document.getElementById(textBoxId).value;
  var content1 ;
  var content2 ;
  var newContent; 
      // For IE 
      if (document.selection != undefined)
        var len =  document.selection.createRange().text.length;
        var myrange

Display each new line of a sharepoint mutliline text field as choice in drop down box.

The question pretty much says it all. I have a lot of data I need to represent, and this would be the best way to do it. I have a multiline text field in sharepoint, where each line has a choice that should be a seperate choice in a text box. How do I do this? I have the data connection set up, and I would be fine with adding some sort of tag after each line, if that would make it so infopath can somehow parse out those tags, and interpret each "chunk" as a choice. Thanks in advance for your help.
