TextBox.AcceptsReturn property

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Gets or sets the value that determines whether the text box allows and displays the newline or return characters.

Syntax


public bool AcceptsReturn { get; set; }


<TextBox AcceptsReturn="bool"/>

Property value

Type: System.Boolean [.NET] | Platform::Boolean [C++]

true if the text box allows newline characters; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Remarks

If you change the AcceptsReturn property to true, text might be displayed differently due to text containing newline characters.

You can enable multi-line text in a TextBox control by using the AcceptsReturn property. Use the ScrollViewer.HorizontalScrollBarVisibility or ScrollViewer.VerticalScrollBarVisibility attached properties to change scrollbar behavior. By default the scrollbars appear when the layout system calculates that the text exceeds the dimensions of the viewport for the TextBox.
