Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public StringBuilder AppendLine(
	string value


Type: System.String

The string to append.

Return Value

Type: System.Text.StringBuilder

A reference to this instance after the append operation has completed.

Exception Condition

Enlarging the value of this instance would exceed MaxCapacity.

The default line terminator is the current value of the Environment.NewLine property.

The capacity of this instance is adjusted as needed.

Notes to Callers:

In the.NET Framework 4 and the .NET Framework 4.5, when you instantiate the StringBuilder object by calling the StringBuilder(Int32, Int32) constructor, both the length and the capacity of the StringBuilder instance can grow beyond the value of its MaxCapacity property. This can occur particularly when you call the Append and AppendFormat methods to append small strings.
