LABELS proporties (NO-KEY-LETTER)

Hi

This feature will disable the underscore for a label when using an '&'.

Is there an environmental configuration for this, instead of changing all programs to add this properties (NO-KEY-LETTER) to the labels. I have looked, but just I case I missed it.

 

Thanks!!

  • I'm not sure I understand the question - do you want to keep the & symbol. If so there are 2 ways to do it. Use the NO-KEY_LETTER style or put in 2 && symbols in the title, see below:

    03 Screen1-La-1, Label, COL 10.60, LINE 3.10, LINES 2.20 CELLS, SIZE 12.30 CELLS,
    ID IS 1, LABEL-OFFSET 0, TITLE "AT&T", NO-KEY-LETTER.

    03 Screen1-La-1a, Label, COL 10.70, LINE 7.30, LINES 2.20 CELLS, SIZE 12.30 CELLS,
    ID IS 3, LABEL-OFFSET 0, TITLE "AT&&T".

  • Hi shjerpe,

    Sorry for the confusion, we want to keep the '&'.
    Lets say we have and supplier name 'T&T', when we try to display this information on the screen as a label we see lose the ''&' and the letter get underscored.
    We can add the property (NO-KEY-LETTER) to keep the '&', but do not want to change all programs to add the property.
    Just is wondering if there was a environmental variable (something global) that we can use so that we do not have to change the coding.
    Thanks!!

    There isn't an environment or runtime configuration variable to provide what you are looking for. I would think you'd want to keep most of the shortcuts that & provides, the ones where you want to keep the & versus having a shortcut using && seems the quickest fix.
