Extended Characters in Visual Forms

Postby Star-Dot-Star on Sun Jan 19, 2003 11:43 pm

I've got a form with a calculator keypad. I'd like to know how to use the traditional divide sign as a label for the divide button, instead of the more modern '/'. It's in the default character set, so I just need to know how to get it into the button text.

Sorry if this came up before. I did a search, but found no reference.

Thanks!

Hello:
I don't know if the traditional divide sign is available in the Palm char set, do you check it?

A way to fake this may be:

- PToolbox: put a standard button and clear the Text property. Put a Bitmap control, change its size to 5 x 5 (suggested, depends on the font you are using) and draw the divide sign on it. Move the bitmap over the empty button to the desire position. If the divide bitmap is placed in a layer below the button use the context menu (Right click over the button) and Send to back the button.

- CControls: you may use the same solution or draw the all the button (borders also) in a Image control and set its Clickable property to Yes.

The 5 x 5 bitmaps are small to handle with the mouse, keep pressed the shift while you move it to avoid the resize, or use the cursor keys or change the top and left properties in the Properties Editor.

Good luck!

Diego

Ooops! I re-read your message and see that you have checked the availability of the char! If you know the ASCII code in Palm, try to put it in the Text or Content property using Alt+Char code.

This also brings up an interesting option for create buttons with bitmaps! Put a Bitmap or Image control over a standard Button and it will receive the taps and it will change their colors in the usual behavior.
I will test this more deep and I may include some option for do it automatically in the next release of Pocket VisualForms

Thanks for your comment, you are welcome.
