Parameter Description Example value

Text without newline characters.


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.
