TextBox::AcceptsReturn Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether pressing ENTER in a multiline TextBox control creates a new line of text in the control or activates the default button for the form.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public:
property bool AcceptsReturn {
	bool get ();
	void set (bool value);
}

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if the ENTER key creates a new line of text in a multiline version of the control; false if the ENTER key activates the default button for the form. The default is false.

If the value of this property is false, the user must press CTRL+ENTER to create a new line in a multiline TextBox control. If there is no default button for the form, the ENTER key will always create a new line of text in the control, regardless of the value of this property.

The following code example creates a multiline TextBox control with vertical scroll bars. This example uses the AcceptsTab, AcceptsReturn, and WordWrap properties to make the multiline text box control useful for creating text documents.


public:
   void CreateMyMultilineTextBox()
   {
      // Create an instance of a TextBox control.
      TextBox^ textBox1 = gcnew TextBox;

      // Set the Multiline property to true.
      textBox1->Multiline = true;
      // Add vertical scroll bars to the TextBox control.
      textBox1->ScrollBars = ScrollBars::Vertical;
      // Allow the RETURN key to be entered in the TextBox control.
      textBox1->AcceptsReturn = true;
      // Allow the TAB key to be entered in the TextBox control.
      textBox1->AcceptsTab = true;
      // Set WordWrap to true to allow text to wrap to the next line.
      textBox1->WordWrap = true;
      // Set the default text of the control.
      textBox1->Text = "Welcome!";
   }
