Which language is that? If it's C#, try string.Split()

Solution 2

This should do:

string a = @"If I had to live my life without you near me
                  The days would all be empty
                  The nights would seem so long
                  With you I see forever oh so clearly
                  I might have been in love before
                  But it never felt this strong";
 
string[] lines = a.Split(new string[] { Environment.NewLine }, StringSplitOptions.None);
 
StringBuilder s = new StringBuilder();
 
for (int i = 0; i < lines.Length; i++)
{
   s.AppendFormat("{0}. {1}{2}", i + 1, lines[i], Environment.NewLine);
}
 
string newString = s.ToString();


Cheers

Thank Mario Majčica, this is the solution for me.
In your answer, i think have small problem, when Im input multiple space before strings.
Ex: "If I had to live my life without you near me
' 'The days would all be empty"
Space is the user enter space
Result:
1. If I had to live my life without you near me
2. ' 'The days would all be empty"
result request:
1. If I had to live my life without you near me
2. The days would all be empty
Thank you very much.

If you are trying to remove the unused spaces, use the Trim function:
s.AppendFormat("{0}. {1}{2}", i + 1, lines[i].Trim(), Environment.NewLine);
You can also use TrimStart or TrimEnd in order to remove only initial or endin spaces.

Also my example contains spaces because of formatting. If you get out of the declared string all the spaces, they will not be visible in the example. Try it by setting the text in the multiline textbox and then process it. It should work. Inform yourself about '@' string literal.
