Hi,

Try the following code in order to insert a new line in a text of text box:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.             if (TextBox1.Text.Length == 70)
  2.             {
  3.                //check if no of characters in a textbox is equal to 70
  4.                 TextBox1.Text += "\n";
  5.             }
  6.

Well it would be "\r\n" for windows systems. ("\n" is used on linux/unix and "\r" is used on MAC I believe)
At any rate you could just use Environment.NewLine

Plater: \r was used on older Macs. OS X is Unix, so it uses \n also.
