Button Caption

Hi,


I want a button caption to be AT&T... I know "&" is a special symbol but is there a way around it? Right now all I can get is ATT... which I can live with if I have to.

Re: Button Caption

Hi Gale. This is actually something good to remember. When you have problems displaying "special" characters, the first thing you could try is double it up, to see if it helps. Cheers!

Re: Button Caption

Thank you theDBguy, this is a very handy tip... one I am sure I'll use often :-)



BTW, I tried to respond yesterday but I was getting server errors. Not sure if it was the host server for this site or something else but I couldn't connect to the forum. It's fine now ...

Hi Gale. I don't think it was you, because I was having the same problems yesterday. Good luck with your project.
