I have a custom field called Current_Address__c which is of datatype textarea.
I need to populate this field in the format below. ie a newline char after street and another newline after zip.
street City state Zip Country
The values of city state zip country etc are been taken from contact object. I dont want to use this as a formula field. So i need to populate it in my controller and display it on my VF page.
I am trying to add a newline char by using the code below:
this.customobj.Current_Address__c = currentStreet + '\\n ' + currentCity + ' ' + currentState + ' ' + currentZIP + '\\n ' + currentCountry ;
I had also used \n instead of \n.
It still shows the field in one line instead of 3 lines
