ENDOFLINE replace oddness

I am trying to replace all the endoflines that are in a textareawhen I copy that textarea into a string and can not seem to get the EOLs to be replaced

What I want to do is to turn every EOL into a
that way when the string is displayed it shows
where the endofline would be.

newstring.Text = textarea.text.Replace(EndOfLine,"\ ")

The string is keeping the ENDOFLINEs and not inserting the \


Thanks Michel, I was just coming back to post my finding. Using the same solution you referred to

string = DefineEncoding(string,Encodings.UTF8) fixstring = ReplaceLineEndings(string,"\ ")
