    newline character in rich text box?

    This seems like a simple enough question...

    How do you add a "newline character" to a rich text box?

    I am outputting from the code itself using AppendText

    like

    myRichTextBox.AppendText("Line1")
    'I want a new line here
    myRichTextBox.AppendText("Line2")



    i.e. I want it to appear like:

    Line1
    Line2


    But I don't know how to skip down to the next line.
    This would be like printf("\n") in C. (I know C, but I'm new to VB!)

    I am using VB.NET, if it makes a difference.

    Any help appreciated. Thanks a lot!!

    Try \line for a line break, \par for a paragraph break
