add new line in string

Hi

I want to add new line sting which are displaying on label in power app.

In below code I am using char(10) but it is not working.

 

Concatenate("Hello ",lbl_approvervalidationlogic.Text,   ", "   ,Char(10) , "You have been selected as an approver")

 

Please note , using this code  to assign value in variable and label in canvas app.

 

Regards,

Lalit Kadam

Hi @Lalit_Kadam ,

That should work as Text - you can also try Char(13), but I have tested as below

Also if you are using this ultimately in an email body, try <br> instead. If you use Office365Outlook.SendEmailV2, it will automatically pick up and render the HTML line break.

Hi @Lalit_Kadam :

Do you want to split a string into two lines?

I thought of a convenient method, that is to use the HTML Text control.We can use the <br> tag in the HTML Text control to achieve line breaks.

I've made a test for your reference:

1\Add a Html Text control:

HtmlText:

 

"Hello "&lbl_approvervalidationlogic.Text & ",<br>" & "You have been selected as an approver"

I have found that if you target both browser and mobile, it seems that you need both Char(10) & "<br>" together.  The browser is ignoring the Char(10) and mobile (at least iOS) ignores the "<br>". I don't have Android or Windows PowerApps application.

Concatenate("Hello ",lbl_approvervalidationlogic.Text,   ", "   ,Char(13) , "You have been selected as an approver")

is functional on a label too

Thanks
