    I need to make a "box" that will allow me to type in some paragraphs and
    other data which involves some carriage returns. The user will never change
    the data - it will be read-only.

    I tried to do this with a "label" but when I enter the label data and hit
    "enter" it does not go to the next line. Should I continue using a label
    and alter it somehow? Or is there another control I should use?

    Use Ctrl+Enter to force a new line in a control.

    In a text box, you can set the EnterKeyBehavior property (Other tab of the
    Properties box.)

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
