Bug? Logcolor statement truncates strings

Hi,
i found that logging strings with Logcolor truncates the string, using the usual Log the string is ok.

I'm using B4A V4.30

here is the code to demonstrate it :

B4X:
Sub ServerLog(AddLog As String)
    'save the daily log
    DateTime.DateFormat="yyyyMMdd"
   
    AddLog=DateTime.Date(DateTime.Now) & "-" & DateTime.Time(DateTime.Now) & " Server: " & AddLog &CRLF
    'LogColor(AddLog,Colors.Red)
    Log(AddLog)
    Dim DailyLog As String =DateTime.Date(DateTime.Now) &"_"& Main.LogFile
    Dim FileOut As OutputStream=File.OpenOutput(Main.WkDir,DailyLog,True)
    Dim Tw As TextWriter
    Tw.Initialize(FileOut)
    Tw.Write(AddLog)
    Tw.Close
       
End Sub
in my case i'm trying to log a string containing an ip address, when logged in red the string is truncated, when logged normally the string is ok. Also the code saves the log in a file and it's correct in both cases.

I made two screenshots where you can see the behaviour

Bye

Hi Erel, thanks.
The log is OK with your example.
however i found that if you add another CRLF at the end of the string the bug appear:

B4X:
Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    'Do not forget to load the layout file created with the visual designer. For example:
    'Activity.LoadLayout("Layout1")
   
    Dim AddLog As String =DateTime.Date(DateTime.Now) & "-" & DateTime.Time(DateTime.Now) & " Server: 2134234234234" &CRLF & CRLF
      LogColor(AddLog,Colors.Red)
    AddLog="number with dots: " & "123.456.789.123.456.789" & CRLF & CRLF
    LogColor (AddLog,Colors.Red)
    AddLog =DateTime.Date(DateTime.Now) & "-" & DateTime.Time(DateTime.Now) & " Server: current ip: 151.61.236.114" &CRLF & CRLF
    LogColor (AddLog,Colors.Red)

   

End Sub
in fact, looking the images in my first post, there is an empty line after the logs, telling me that the CRLF is doubled.
