When I extract the following from result handler xml, the \n display as \n in TextArea. How can I extract from result so they are actually line breaks?

    var defaultEmailTextValue:String = resultData..EmailText;

    If you're actually seeing the character sequence "\n" it means somewhere along the lines a newline is being replaced by that character sequence... if you don't know where that's happening (I suspect somewhere on the server, not the Flex framwork) then your simplest solution would be to replace that character sequence with a newline:


    defaultEmailTextValue = defaultEmailTextValue.replace(/\\n/g, "\n");
