Bird's code is right on for returning the number of text lines in an Edit
field. Another good reference for information about the TE(text edit)
record is Frank Turovich's book "Learning FB II--The Toolbox". It contains
a complete chapter on text edit. Read only electronic copies are available
at no charge from (I believe---check me on this) the futurebasic.org site.
Staz might be able to sell you the hardcopies if you're interested.
