Help with variable name containing a single double quote....

3 posts in this topic

OK gents, Im working on an app that has a graphical button that the info window returns as having 4x6" as the text property. Thats 4x6 with a double quote(") appended to the end of it making it 4x6". So far, I cant figure out how to deal with the single-double quote at the end. I always get a syntax error if I try to click the button because Control Click doesnt like the various names Ive tried like:

" 4x6" " OR "" 4x6" ""

What to do? I need to use the text property and nothing else so somehow I have to call the control by the text property which is 4x6"

Thanks!

Enclose the text in single inverted commas

'4x6"'

s2mikey,

Try enclosing it in single quotes:

'4x6"'
