I have long text area field, which has data on each line. I am populating a line then hitting "Enter" and then populating the next line and hitting "enter" again and so on.
When reading this field from APEX I am splitting the field by
This returns me list of string where each string corresponds to the line in the long text area field. This way I am successfully able to read each line of the long text area field.
When I looked at the documentation of Long Text Area, below is what I see following:
Note that every time you press Enter within a long text area field, a linebreak and a return character are added to the text."
But based on what I explained in the begining when I press enter, all I get is a
\n, newline character.
Why do I see difference in documentation vs what I am doing ? Is my way of reading Long Text Area field is correct or am I missing something ?
