@CRLF within a string?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create a GUI for Xcopy and FileRead wasn't working for my help text.

Sooo... What I'm trying to do is display a MsgBox with the text being $helptext.

While declarying this variable I'm trying to make it equal a string with @CRLF, is this possible?

It is several lines and I would like to keep the indentation, will I have to put all the lines into one line for it to be included in $helptext

or should I make each line begin with $helptext &= " text" & @CRLF

$helptext = "This is my help text." & @CRLF & _
    @TAB & "There are many like it, " & @CRLF & _
    @TAB & "but this one is mine!"
For $n = 1 To 10
    $helptext &= @CRLF & @TAB & @TAB & "Extra line: " & $n
Next
MsgBox(64, "Test", $helptext)

:idea:

Well this didn't work

Local $helptext = "XCOPY [source] [destination] [/A | /M] [/D[:date]] [/P] [/S [/E]] [/V] [/W]" & @CRLF & _
"                           [/C] [/I] [/Q] [/F] [/L] [/G] [/H] [/R] [/T] [/U]" & @CRLF & _
"                           [/K] [/N] [/O] [/X] [/Y] [/-Y] [/Z]" & @CRLF & _
"                           [/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...]" & @CRLF & _
MsgBox(0, "Xcopy GUI Help", $helptext)
