the text is too long

How to work on multiple lines in the html code area but not with <br> because i don't want that the text will be cut on the webpage for the client

in visual basic code we do :

"aslaskjfljksflksjafjsalfjsljkf" _

& "laskjflsjafkjsafjlsjlkfjasjfkljf" _

& "laskjflkasjlfjskjfkjsljfksalfkjasl"

    Just drop in a text box with textmode=multiline

    Like this:

                <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"
                    Height="163px" Width="341px">

    And the effect is now this: (I'll cut + paste in your question text).


    so, the word warp (word break) is automatic as above shows.

    So, a text box is a good choice. And if you don't want the user to edit the text box, you can set enabled=false.

    Hi @Pierre Zarzour,

    You can specify the width of the label and add style="word-wrap:break-word;".

    <asp:Label ID="la" runat="server" width="100px" style="word-wrap:break-word;" ></asp:Label>

    Best regards,

    Probably there is no such feature. But you can let Visual Studio to automatically wrap the lines: go to menu, TOOLS, Options, Text Editor, ASP.NET Web Forms, General, and uncheck “Enable virtual space” and check “Word wrap”. (This can be done for HTML, XAML and XML too). Then the long attribute values will be displayed by Visual Studio on multiple lines.
