    Can't find newlines in a textArea using a regular expression search


      For some reason, when I do a regular expression search and replace for a newline (\n) in a textArea (flex 3.5), it does not find the newline.  However, it works fine on a regular string.  Does anyone have any idea why?  Below is my code:


      var textArea1:TextArea = new TextArea;
      var pattern:RegExp = /\n/;
      textArea1.text = "\n Hello World"


      also tried the same with textArea1.text.replace("\n", "ddd") and same thing.
