Display character '&' (ampersand) does not work

      Display character '&' (ampersand) does not work

      Hi,

      why will be the '&' (ampersand) not be shown.

      I have a NetDcuA5 with WinCe 6.0

      I use the following c++ code:

      SetDlgItemText(IDC_MY_STATIC_TEST, _T(" hallo mein '&' text"));

      It is just showing: hallo mein '' text

      Any help would be great.
      Hello,

      assume it is the same reason as for "%"! "&" may be used for format purposes so try "&&" to got one "&" in your string.

      The character & is used in many cases to underline the next character to show that it can be used as a shortcut. You must use two ampersands && to get one visible &. See support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/261320
