  • writing new line to text file

    Hi guys,

    I have a form, when the user submits i want to write the line to the text file, but append not overwrite the data, however i want it appended on the next line.

    Current text file:
    my;name;is

    After adding i want:
    my;name;is
    new;name;is

    NOT
    my;name;isnew;name;is

    I assume i use the string append, but what character do i append to put the data on the nextline?

    Hi. The TextFile.WriteFromString() action has an append option, would this be better suited to this task or am I misunderstanding?

      hi corey,

      yeah thats what im using, but it appends to the text, not a new line, do you know what im saying

      existing text

      once i append "newtext"

      this is what i get:
      existing textnewtext

      this is what i want
      existing text
      new text

        Hi. just add \r\n to your text... i.e.:

        "\r\n\Line to write to file here"

        That creates a new line in the text file...

          in4 = Input.GetText("Input4");
          result = String.Concat(in1, ";");
          result2 = String.Concat(result, in2);
          result = String.Concat(result2, ";");
          result3 = String.Concat(result, in3);
          result = String.Concat(result3, ";");
          result4 = String.Concat(result, in4);
          TextFile.WriteFromString("output.txt", result4, true);
          TextFile.WriteFromString("output.txt", 'r\n\', true);

          Error Detail: [unfinished string near `<eof>'] in [TextFile.WriteFromString("output.txt", 'r\n\', true);]
