The symbol appearing when the TextBox.Multiline
property is set to false is an escape symbol for the new line in the string.
After discussing the question with our development team, it appears the TextBox.Multiline
property is not applicable for TextBox items in the context of a static documents like reports. In reports, TextBox items only visualize data without accepting an input. There are properties like CanGrow, CanShrink and TextWrap which can control how the content of the item is visualized.
Thus the TextBox.Multiline
property will be made obsolete in a consecutive release.
In your case:
- If you want to hide the content only visually, you can use a combination of the TextBox item's CanGrow and TextWrap properties;
- If you want to display only a specific part of the content, please use the built-in Text functions or a custom one to get a sub string from the original field's value.
If none of the above works in your scenario, please elaborate on the original TextBox value, how it looks on preview, and what result is actually expected on preview and in Excel.
