Notes

As indicated by the syntax, EndOfLine can be used in either of two ways. You can call one of its properties to get the line ending for that platform or you can call it without accessing any of its properties. In that case, it returns the EndOfLine character or character string for the platform being compiled.

Use the ReplaceLineEndings function to convert the line endings of text from one line ending to another.

Starting with 2013r1, EndOfLine returns EndOfLine.Unix on all macOS apps.

You can also use EndOfLine.macOS, which is equivalent.

Sample Code

The following example specifies Unix line endings.

Var cr As String
cr = EndOfLine.Unix
TextField1.Value = "Hello world" + cr + "Such as it is."
