Android Question writelist: one line per item?

    Supposedly, File.writelist(File.DirRootExternal, "whatever.txt", list1) writes a line for each item in list1, but this is not what I am getting.
    I suppose I am missing some split parameter, as I get one line text file.

    Can you help me?

    Thank you.

    Yes it did
    Code:
    Dim l As List
        l.Initialize
        l.Add(
    "Test1")
        l.Add(
    "Test2")
        l.Add(
    "Test3")
        l.Add(
    "Test4")
        l.Add(
    "Test5")
        
    File.WriteList(File.DirRootExternal, "file_writelist.txt", l)
    creates this file...

    My guess is that you are using Notepad to check the file. Don't. Use a better text editor such as Notepad++.

    You both are right.
    I was using NotePad.
    Thank you very much.
