yes, but it can't be combined with DT_VCENTER:
"Centers text vertically. This value is used only with the DT_SINGLELINE value."
i read it: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd162498(v=vs.85).aspx
that says nothing about not being able to use VT_EXPANDTABS with DT_SINGLELINE or DT_VCENTER. The link you posted is the same one I posted. If you want to use '\n' or '\r' then you have to parse it yourself and split the line at '\n'
