Store Carriage Returns as <br /><br /> or <p></p> in DB

I have a multi line text in an admin page on my cms.

I am trying to capture carriage returns as and replace them with
<p></p> bfore the string gets written to the database.

I have tried all the charcontrols option and chr(13) with success.. was
using the following code:

Dim s As String = MyTextbox.Text

s = "<p>" & s & "</p>"
s.Replace(Contr olChars.CrLf & ControlChars.Cr Lf, "</p><p>")
s.Replace(Contr olChars.Lf, "<br />")
s.Replace("\n", "<br />")
s.Replace(Contr olChars.Cr & ControlChars.Cr , "</p><p>")
s.Replace(Contr olChars.NewLine , "<br />")
s.Replace(Contr olChars.Vertica lTab, "<br />")
s.Replace(Chr(1 3), "<br />")

I have tried all the above, but non have worked.

The only work around i have found is to perform a string.replace when
displaying on the webpage by the following:

<%# container.datai tem("MyTextFiel d").replace(chr (13),"<br />") %>

This works but is not ideal as it means i have to hard code each page.

How do i do this?

Hi,

String.Replace is a function that returns a string. Try this
instead.

s=s.Replace(Con trolChars.CrLf & ControlChars.Cr Lf, "</p><p>")

I have done this simple function, it seems to work as intended, to solve a problem i have had for a while. I couldnt find any sample around that was working for me. I would like to test it with you and see if there are any improvments that i should make ;-) It should be fast and if possible compatible with todays modern browser-standards. It should be activated by the onload-event. This is my code, free for all to use:

I have an XML file that stores data from an HTML form. I use XSL to display the data in HTML format. The data may have newline characters. However, XSL is not displaying the newlines properly in the browser. I even replaced all the newlines with <BR/> tags but eventhough I see the tags in my source, I don't get a line break in the output document. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all, I have a textarea control. I am putting it's value in an html email. The problem is that the new lines are being ignored. I want to take the controls value and replace any newline carriage returns, with an html <br> tag. I tried the following function but it doesn't work. Does anyone have any ideas how to accomplish this? Thanks in advance. ~ CK string getComments()

$a = $_POST; # txt_content = This is a<CR><LF>Test $p = str_replace ("%0D%0A", "<br>", $a); That is the above code that I am using, however, it is not picking up the CR/LF from the textarea. I have also attempted singular variations of the CR/LF combination and even reversed the sequence without success. Is it possible that it may be encoded differently and if so what is it? Thanks
