Newbie question about ControlSetText

Recommended Posts

Hi all...I'm attempting to use ControlSetText but am having trouble with quotation marks. I don't know how to get around this issue. Help please?

ControlSetText("Speak", "", "RichEdit20W1", "[b]HTML's Quick Tips:[/b] Separate sections of your page with style. Use colored and sized line dividers. For Example: <HR COLOR="#FF0000" SIZE="4">[i] For more HTML help, check out my page.[/i]" )

Just replace the double quotes of the last parameter with single quotes:

ControlSetText("Speak", "", "RichEdit20W1", '[b]HTML's Quick Tips:[/b] Separate sections of your page with style. Use colored and sized line dividers. For Example: <HR COLOR="#FF0000" SIZE="4">[i] For more HTML help, check out my page.[/i]' )

Probably a problem of the line above that one because:

ControlSetText("test", "", "Edit1", "[b]HTML's Quick Tips:[/b] Be Bold! Use the bold tag <b></b> to make the words on your page LOUD![i] For more HTML help, check out my page.[/i]" )

Worked for me
