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)

member AcceptsReturn : bool with get, set

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.
