Is there a way to display & in a label?

Recommended Posts

Ive got this label im doing that needs to be like this

Spybot Search & Destroy

But the ampersand is giving me grief

Ive tried

$SSD_name = '"Spybot Search & Destroy"'
$SSD_name = 'Spybot Search ' "&" ' Destroy'
$SSD_name = 'Spybot Search'& "&" & ' Destroy'

$CheckBox3 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox(" " & $SSD_name, 40, 105, 210)

And a few others

But it seems to leave a space on the gui rather than the ampersand, ConsolWrite does it fine just not the checkbox label

Any thoughts?

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

All of the ones tried so far

produce the correct variable even some of mine but they dont work when fed to the checkbox label

"Spybot Search " & Chr(38) & " Destroy"

This does work on the checkbox label but gives incorrect variable

"Spybot Search && Destroy"

I shall just have to do it by hand, at least i can have the label now thx


It seems that the rest of the script ignores the && as well so it still works for the other bits

Thanks again
