Adding a line break via the API



When adding a location to a device via the API I would like to add a line break between the first and second line of the address.

For example how do I get this
123 Smith St.
New York, NY 10000

Out of this /api/setobjectproperty.htm?id=10000&name=location&value=123 Smith St. New York, NY 10000&username=user&password=PW

api geo-maps linebreak location

Sorry, this is not possible.

This is possible by putting "%od" between the 2 lines of location so your example would read: /api/setobjectproperty.htm?id=10000&name=location&value=123 Smith St.%0dNew York, NY 10000&username=user&password=PW

The location field will contain the correct data but the map may not display correctly until you manually go to the location box and press enter after the txt.

Sorry, the code in the first line should read "%0d" i.e. a zero not an "o".
