I am using the RadTextbox with Multiline mode. I cant seem to get the EmptyMessage to accept new line feeds I have tried this

<telerik:RadTextBox ID="txtDisplayName" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind( "Testimonial_Name") %>' TextMode="MultiLine" Rows="3" Columns="50" MaxLength="500" EmptyMessage="(What you place will be displayed as the name) \r\n  Suggestion: Name, company name and position, city, state.">  
                                </telerik:RadTextBox> 
 
AND THIS  
 
<telerik:RadTextBox ID="txtDisplayName" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind( "Testimonial_Name") %>' TextMode="MultiLine" Rows="3" Columns="50" MaxLength="500" EmptyMessage="(What you place will be displayed as the name) \\r\\n  Suggestion: Name, company name and position, city, state.">  
                                </telerik:RadTextBox> 

Neither seems to break the Empty Message to a new line. any ideas?

Hello Loren,

You can insert a line break using the html representation of the line feed character:
&#10;

EmptyMessage="(What you place will be displayed as the name) &#10;
  Suggestion: Name, company name and position, city, state." ...
