Really Special Charactes in label (√/←/...)

6 posts in this topic

I want to have the Square Root () and an Arrow (←) character in a label. But when I copy and paste them from the Windows Character Map, the arrow turns into a question mark and the square root into a 'v'. How can I have those special characters in labels / buttons / anywhere in AutoIt?

Thank you very much

Hi!

u will need to look in setfont() and chr()

aint ure simbol, but just for example how i usually do

$ROUNDARROWRIGHT = CHR(220)

$wdayrightbutton = GUICtrlCreateLabel($ROUNDARROWRIGHT, 10, 10, 180, 180)   
GUICtrlSetFont($wdayrightbutton,21,400,1,"Wingdings")

Switch the Scite source to UTF8  mode: File >> Encoding >> UTF8 + BOM (or UTF8). You need a recent Scite4AutoIt3 to get most benefits of accompanying tools.

That works for the arrow, but unfortunately there's no square root in neither one of the wingigns nor webdings

Im not sure how to write the characters in UTF8 encoding. Other special characters in my code changed to text in a red box (For example ± changed to xB1 as white text in a red box ce49907df5fce752102c9aa00312a5cd.png)

When I just use the character "√" it displays as "√" (8c0b12ba1c227e4aba4ebef2d6819799.png)

Nvermind, I changed it to UTF8, not to UTF8+BOM, so it works now! Thank you very much!
