preserving the layout of text input via text input control



what I want to do is, when using the text input control all cr, lf, crlf and spaces are preserved when the content is input in a db and that the information/layout is preserved when viewing it in a text input filed or grid control.

any ideas

When you input text via a multiline textbox and insert it into a database your specified line breaks will be maintained. When retrieving the record, you will need to do a replace on the string in order to interpret these line breaks in your html:

myField.Replace("\n", "<br />")

Does this answer your question?

Disabling a text box control so no input is allowed
Ok i have a textbox control that is used for inputing a phone number.
