arekowczarek Posted November 12, 2010 Report Share Posted November 12, 2010 Is it possible to set string variables to characters from Extended ASCII Table? i.e. to symbols like these: ■ ▐ ┘ ▒ I know I can have them displayed in the text box correctly if they're put there directly. However, I was thinking of displaying a certain symbol (i.e. "■" or "▐") depending on conditions met. That would require to store the symbols in some kind of a variable. (or I could work around that by displaying a different pre-set text box window according to the conditions met, don't be bothered by the work-around). I tried setting a text variable to one of those symbols and no luck (each symbol is converted to "¦"). There's probably a simple explanation to this, and a technical reason for which a text variable wouldn't accept those characters. It's just bugging me that the text box accepts those characters, while the string variable doesn't. Can anyone put some light on it? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
