    Default Question: pop-up texts

    All I could find that worked was the text color switch, \C. Nothing else I tried would break the line. Would be a nice feature though!

    Default Question: pop-up texts

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know if it is possible to code line breaks in pop-up text, and if so how? Sometimes it would be nice to not have text all in one long line but the \n used in Notes doesn't work for pop-ups.

    Thanks Sven, but if I use \C (on its own) I get some strange behaviour. Either my pop-up text is truncated at that point (I get the same using \n) or, stranger still, in certain configurations I get some of the pop-up text for my last mouseover. You might like to try this code:

    [IButton,"Test button","Mouseover\C"]

    and tell me what happens. Occasionally I get some lurid color combinations and the NoteBar is worth keeping an eye on too. Particularly tantilizing is when I mouseover the HSV color selector and back to my button - the RGB values are there with neat line breaks.

    I'd also be interested to know the code you used to post 36 minutes before my post!

    What I meant to say was the only switch I could get to work in popups was \C (PLUS a value) to change text color. I didn't mean to imply that \C would work as a line break.

    Sorry for the confusion. If I could figure out how I managed the time shift on my earlier post, I would just go back and change the unfortunate phrasing in my answer, thus avoiding the necessity of posting this clarification.

    That's a relief... It's quite possible then that this thread, before long, will have not started at all.
