InputBox$() Function Inserts an Extra Soft Return

Q107533



The information in this article applies to:


  • Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c
  • Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 7.0, 7.0a





SUMMARY

If the ENTER key is pressed in an edit box created by the WordBasic InputBox$ function, an erroneous soft return (newline character) will be inserted into the document in addition to a hard return (paragraph mark).

For example:

     first line  <soft return>
   <hard return>
   second line  <soft return>
   <hard return> 



MORE INFORMATION

To remove the soft return characters, use the CleanString$() function, as in the following macro example:

   Sub MAIN
   a$ = InputBox$("Type more than one line")
   a$ = CleanString$(a$)
   Insert a$
   End Sub 

The above macro inserts a hard return after each new line entered into the InputBox$() edit control.

For example:

   first line   <hard return>
   second line  <hard return> 

To insert a soft return after each new line entered into an InputBox, use the following macro example:

   Sub MAIN
   a$ = InputBox$("Enter more than one line")
   Para = InStr(a$, Chr$(10))
   While Para <> 0
    a$ = Left$(a$, para - 1) + Right$(a$, Len(a$) - para)
    Para = InStr(a$, Chr$(10))
   Wend
   Insert a$
   End Sub
