@TAB

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

In Windows Vista this code lines up the 'Alt+End" with other Tray Items

$sSTrayExit = TrayCreateItem("EXIT " & $Title & @Tab & @Tab & @Tab & "Alt+End")

however in Windows XP the multiple occurances of the @Tab do not line up the "Alt+End" rather the @Tab is converted and displayed as a square box

not unlike this '[]'

Is there a XP and Vista compatible method for lining up text in left justified columns?

Help is always appreciated Ant.. Posted Image

anixon,

I always believed that you needed only a single instance of @TAB to get the Accelerator key to the right of the menu with Windows sorting out the actual spacing for you:

$sSTrayExit = TrayCreateItem("EXIT " & $Title & @Tab & "Alt+End")

It works like that in Vista - give it a try in XP. :(

Thanks for that it will take me a while to get it from my Vista 'development box' to my XP Phone Server I will report back the results later in the day 'thats GMT + 10' Ant..

Was able to get to it a bit quicker than I thought the good news is 'Yes" it works but there is a difference between XP and Vista and that is

in XP the text after the @Tab is left justified whereas in Vista it is right justified. Ant..
