    Hello all,

    I have a button that I would like to start a newline in an EditText. I have tried both of the following, but neither will actually insert a newline:

    EditText t = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.codeText);
    String codeText = t.getText().toString();
    codeText += "\n";
    t.setText(codeText);
    t.setSelection(t.getText().toString().length()); //set cursor to end

    OR

    EditText t = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.codeText);
    SpannableStringBuilder t_init = (SpannableStringBuilder) t.getText();
    t_init.append("\n");
    t.setText(t_init);


    Also, setting the EditText property for horizontal scrolling seems to have no effect:

    android:scrollHorizontally="false"

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
