    I think there may have been a change of behavior in how RadTextBox controls deal with multiline input in the latest quarterly release:

    Previously, when a multiline value was supplied that included line breaks (when the user hits ENTER), the text posted back would include a '\r\n' to delineate the break. Now, the text posted back seems to include just the single '\n' character to delineate the break.

    Telerik - can you please confirm the change in behavior? Is there any way of having the control go back to specifying a line break via '\r\n' instead? Need to know as we're going to have to change a lot of code in order to compensate. Please advise.

    Hello Mike Oliver,

    Indeed you are correct about this change. It was introduced with the official Q2 2012 release (2012.2.607). The behavior have changed as a result of fix for the MaxLength property. The problem is that in the different browsers, the new line character is interpreted differently by the JS engine. For example in IE8 it is count as 2 symbols, while in IE9 it is 1 symbol. Our developers tried to fix that in the RadTextBox client side scripts, but it looks like they have missed this scenario.

    Anyway I have a logged a bug for this behavior and notified our developers for it. Unfortunately I can not provide you with exact estimate about when it will be fixed. We will give our best to include in the Q3 2012 release expected in the mid October. Meanwhile you can follow the status of the issue in our public issue tracking system.

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
