textview '\n' not causing carraige return

 I am very confused.  I have brought in data from a database in a
string format.  This data is something like "Hello\nThis is a Test"
But it is not the '\n' as a carriage return and I am not sure why.  If
I add another part to the string with like ... string + "\nHello" it
works fine with the "\n".  So I am assuming that somehow it is
bringing in the \n as 2 characters from the database instead of 1.

I have tried to modify the database to be both varChars and texts for
the column and they both are the same result.  Is there something
straight forward I am missing?

Bear in mind that "newlines" in Windows are \r\n, whereas in Linux and
OS X they are \n.

I do not know if that relates to your issue, but it's the first thing
that jumps to mind...

textview '\n' not causing carraige return

 Thats true and I have tested using a \r in there but it is on the
android emulator.  Its just odd because at one point it was working
fine.  I can make a new string and put a \n in and it works fine.  It
just does not like the one that is taken out of the database.  I have
tried both importing in my own database and creating a new one with
one row and both will not work.  Is there a setting on the Textview
that can disable this?
