Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public override bool Multiline { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_Multiline ()

/** @property */
public void set_Multiline (boolean value)

public override function get Multiline () : boolean

public override function set Multiline (value : boolean)

Property Value

true if the control is a multiline TextBox control; otherwise, false. The default is false.

AutoCompleteSource does not work on multiline TextBox controls.

When the font is changed, any indentation that you have defined does not appear. To get indentation, set Multiline to true and override WM_SETFONT without calling the base class so that SETMARGINS is not called.
