[Solved] Amperstand Chr()

Recommended Posts

jfcby

How do you get the amperstand character to show up in a GUICtrlCreateGroup? I've looked in the help file and the ASCII DEC = 38 and the HEX = 26 neither of them worked. I've tried Chr, ChrW, Asc, and AscW.

Example

GUICtrlCreateGroup("Test Chr() Ampersand = " & Chr(38) & " :", 7, 7, 358, 75)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

Example1()


; example 1
Func Example1()
    Local $msg

    GUICreate("My GUI")  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)       ; will display an empty dialog box
    
    GUICtrlCreateGroup("Test Chr() Ampersand = " & Chr(38) & " :", 7, 7, 358, 75)


    GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)  ;close group
    
    ; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()

        If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    WEnd
    GUIDelete()
EndFunc   ;==>Example1

Thank you for your help.

jfcby,

How do you get the amperstand character to show up in a GUICtrlCreateGroup?

Like this: :blink:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

GUICtrlCreateGroup("Test Chr() Ampersand = && :", 7, 7, 358, 75)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd
