c# Label Multiline

Is it possible to create a label with multline property?

I would consider them already multi-line, as the text will wrap to the next line if it exceeds the horizontal size of the label.

Yeah that is possible. Instead of using the label property... view the code behind and do this instead: this.label1.Text = @" Line 1 Line 2 Line 3 "; Remember to place the @ in front of the "". It enables you to do as above. Hope it helps. Cheers.

In the Label Properties of Visual Studio:

Select Text and click on the drop down arrow at right end
now type first line and press Enter
then type 2nd line and  press Enter
follow the above steps

by code:

            label2.Text = "Line1\r\nLine 2";
            label3.Text = "L3 Line 1" + Environment.NewLine + "L3 Line 2";
            label4.Text = "L4Line 1 \n L4Line 2";

In visual studio we dont have a option to make label Multiline as textbox.
We can make a textbox to looklike multiline label:

1. Drag and Drop a Textbox on to your Form
2. Goto Properties window to that Textbox
3. Set Multiline Property to True
4. Set BorderStyle to None
5. Set BackColor to Control
6. Set ReadOnly to True

more info you will better undersated.

Please check my answer if you help.....

Thanks ....Lalit.

You could change the property Autosize to false, that way you can adjust the size anyway you want.
