Hi All,

I am coding in vb.net with backend in sql server 2012.

In a multiline text box, I want to show a string field data with multilines segregated by semicolon (;)

Currentely all the text from field is shown as a single sentence.

How can I create new line based upon the character(;)?

following is the simple code currently used:

textbox.text = datatable.Rows(0).Item("field")


Thanks in advance

Split the text based on some character. For e.g. blank or fullstop etc.
Then display this as a <ul><li>item1</li><li>item2</li>...</ul> list inside a div control.
