    As if one is typing into the text??



    if working with field you can just

    put newChar after field "display" -- next char

    put newChar & return after field "display" -- next line (with a blank
    at end)


    new line in a tet member would take

    member("displayTxt").text = member("displayTxt").text & newChar & return
