    Seems like if you have a multiline radtextbox with a multilined emptymessage (containing CrLf's) AND a tooltip, the emptymessage is set as the value of the textbox.

    If only using Lf's to seperate the lines it is working as expected

    generated html that is working (without Cr's):
    <input ...... value="{"enabled":true,"emptyMessage":"EmptyMsg1\nEmptyMsg2","validationText":"","valueAsString":"","lastSetTextBoxValue":"EmptyMsg1\nEmptyMsg2"}">

    generated html that is working (with CrLf's):
    <input value="{"enabled":true,"emptyMessage":"EmptyMsg1\r\nEmptyMsg2","validationText":"EmptyMsg1\nEmptyMsg2","valueAsString":"EmptyMsg1\nEmptyMsg2","lastSetTextBoxValue":"EmptyMsg1\nEmptyMsg2"}">

    I've manually fixed this by removing any Cr's from the EmptyMessage, but seems like a strange bug as it is only a problem when a text for .Tooltip is used.

    Hi Stein,

    The described behavior is observed because of the way the RadTextBox control works internally. If you would like to have the EmptyMessage displayed on more than one line you should replace the "\r\n" string with "\n". This way the EmptyMessage text will be displayed only when the input is blurred and has no value.
