I have a list which contains one textbox in it.

Basically what it does is get some results and display them one above the other.
The problem occures when I have a result that is multiline. The result then tends to "overflow" over everything under it.

The structure of the portion is

Group 1
    Question 1
         Result 1
         Result 2
         ...
         Result N

Group 2
     Question 1
          Result 1
          Result 2
          ...
          Result N

If for example Result 1 is multiline it will overflow onver Result 2/3/4 or even over the next group...
How can I make the list which contains Results expand as the textbox for the results expand as well (TextBox.CanGrow = true for textboxes holding results. I can't find anything similar for lists)

Edit: I have solved the problem by using "Regex.Replace(string,"\r", " ") and having it all in one line and wrapping but I would really like to keep the formating if possible

Hi Ivan,

Our suggestion is you to use \r\n instead of \r. If you can't replace the carriage return characters in your data source our suggestion is to utilize an user function for replacing the carriage return characters as the following one:

public static object ReplaceCRCharacters(string value)
{
    return value.Replace("\r", "\r\n");
}
Kind regards,
