A newline is mostly a \n but could also be a \r\n ..

So if you need to have a result from your database and you NEED to have that string on 1 single line ( because of a javascript tool that needs a string on 1 single line ... ) act like this:



Code:
      while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {     
        if($removenewlines)
        {
           $row['text'] = str_replace("\r\n",' ',$row['text']);
       }
     }




Which would look functionwhise something like this :
Code:
/**
* Clears strings from their newlines, handy if you need a string in javascript ..
* @author   Ramon Fincken
* http://www.ramonfincken.com/permalink/topic88.html
*/
function remove_newlines($txt)
{
   $txt = str_replace("\r\n",' ',$txt);
   return $txt;
}




Instead of \r\n a \n could also do the trick.
Optional in the replace is a <br/> Smile
