TextArea X2021R1.1

Hello ,
How to add a row to Textarea if it no longer has an addRow method? How to display text that contains ěččřřžžýýýáááíííé?
thanks for the reply

TextArea never had an AddRow method. How about AppendText.

Or just set the Text property

Use AddText.

myTextArea.AddText ("ěččřřžžýýýáááíííé" + EndofLine)


What gives you that idea???

AddRow for a TextArea would be seriously weird …

AppendText is deprecated.

Where does it say that? It’s certainly not on the deprecations page:


or on



Why would it say, on the AddText page, that AppendText is deprecated? Try what Alberto said.

Ah, my bad. Yes, AppendText is replaced by AddText. I was actually reading AppendText as AddText …

AppendText and AddText are different methods

Does this mean Greg is still using API1? :thinking:

Is API2 not mature enough for production code (eg the Xojo IDE)? :wink:

From the AppendText page:


From Xojo Documentation

\ 40x40 This item was deprecated in version 2019r2.
Please use TextEdit.AddText as a replacement.

Real people don’t Append … only nerds do! :wink:

I’m sorry, but Append is the more descriptive verb. I wish they hadn’t made this change.


Sorry , i thought webTextarea

add_praci.PopupMenu5.SelectionChanged, line 1
Type “WebTextArea” has no member named “AddText”
TextArea1.AddText = me.SelectedItem.Text

When I load these characters from the DB ěččřřžžýýýáááííí I assign defineecoding or convert encoding system default or UTF8 webTextarea remains empty

AddText is not a property that takes an assignment, it’s a method that you call with parameters:


Could you show us your code?

Hi Greg ,
this is my code
TextArea1.Text= actual_row.Field("popis").Stringvalue.trim.DefineEncoding(Encodings.SystemDefault)
