  • escape sequence

    I am sure this is a simple one -- is there any way to avoid escape sequences (particularly \n) in a text string when using Paragraph.SetText ?

    I am using the Dialog.FolderBrowse action to browse for a folder, and then write the chosen folder and path in a paragraph. For example:

    storage_path = Dialog.FolderBrowse("Please select a folder:", _ProgramFilesFolder);
    if (storage_path ~= "CANCEL") then
    Paragraph.SetText("Paragraph2", storage_path);
    end

    The problem is, if I select a folder starting with the letter n (eg c:\newfolder), this and its preceeding backslash are interpretted as a \n newline, and the paragraph text is set as:

    c:
    ewfolder

    Any help appreciated.
    Thanks, CW

      Thanks Ron, but unfortuantely that doesn't work. :(

      I am using the Dialog.FolderBrowse function which automatically sets the variable for me. The variable is displayed correctly in a message box, but not when used with Paragraph.SetText.

      Even the following doesn't work:

      testvar = "C:\\newfolder";
      Paragraph.SetText("Paragraph1", testvar);

              Try using ListBox & ListBox.SetItemText.
