Text.RemoveNewLine

Removes newline characters from string.

Component Version macOS Windows Server FileMaker Cloud FileMaker iOS SDK
Text 2.4 Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes

MBS( "Text.RemoveNewLine"; Text )

(old name: String.RemoveNewLine)

Parameters

Parameter Description Example value
Text The text to process. "Hello World"

Result

Text without newline characters.

Description

Removes newline characters from string.
FileMaker has a text replace command, but can't process all combinations of newline characters with it. As this function removes all newlines independent of whether you have CR, LF or CRLF in any combination.
We needed this for a client in combination with WebView.RunJavaScriptReturnTitle. An older version of Internet Explorer made trouble with newline characters inside javascript text, so we removed them.

Examples

Remove newlines from field

MBS( "Text.RemoveNewLine"; Test Database::TextField )
