Using IE8 when I enter text (with newlines using the enter key) into a textarea and using the onchange event and ajax, I submit the new text into a FMServer 11.5 database, all works well. I can view that field with FMPro, and the newlines(or carriage returns or whatever you want to call them) are preserved.
So it appears, that the newline that is passed by Chrome to the Filemaker API, is being ignored.
an example would be, when I enter the following in the textarea element:
when viewed in the DB with FMPro it looks like what is input, but when the same is done with Chrome, it looks like the following:
If anyone can shed any light on this, it would be greatly appreciated.
