Calling a function to format text C#

Calling a function to format text C#

Calling a function to format text C#


In my .aspx page I have some code to display some data from a SQL query:


<asp:Label ID="EventDetailsLabel" runat="server" 
                Text='<%# Eval("EventDetails").ToString().Replace(Environment.NewLine,"<br />") %>' CssClass="upcomingevents_details" /> 

I figured this looked a little untidy so I decided to try and make a little function in my .cs file to do the formatting.


public string addLineBreaks(string eventDescription)
        string formattedEventDescription = eventDescription.Replace(Environment.NewLine, "<br />");
        return formattedEventDescription;

Please can you let me know how I call this function from my .aspx page - once I understand how to do that I am then going to make the function do a few other things to format the text just the way I want it.

Thanks very much
