Recipe 5.19. Double-Spacing a String


Problem

You want to double-space a string comprised of multiple lines of text separated by newlines.

Solution

Use the String object's Replace() method to replace all vbNewLines with two vbNewLines.

Discussion

The Replace() method provides an easy solution to this problem. Simply replace each occurrence of a vbNewLine separating the lines of text with a double vbNewLine:

 content = content.Replace(vbNewLine, vbNewLine & vbNewLine) 

Figures 5-20 and 5-21 show a multiline example string before and after this replacement.
