Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

static member NewLine : string

Property Value

Type: System.String
A string containing "\r\n" for non-Unix platforms, or a string containing "\n" for Unix platforms.

The property value of NewLine is a constant customized specifically for the current platform and implementation of the .NET Framework. For more information about the escape characters in the property value, see Character Escapes.

The functionality provided by NewLine is often what is meant by the terms newline, line feed, line break, carriage return, CRLF, and end of line.

NewLine can be used in conjunction with language-specific newline support such as the escape characters '\r' and '\n' in Microsoft C# and C/C++, or vbCrLf in Microsoft Visual Basic.

NewLine is automatically appended to text processed by the Console.WriteLine and StringBuilder.AppendLine methods.

The following example displays three lines separated by newlines.
