Menu Bar Separator

I've searched the forums for a while to make sure that this isn't a well-known thing, but I still fear it could be one.
In that case: :sign0161:

I was making some increase/decrease menu buttons labeled with "+" and "-".
I noticed that there wasnt any "-" menu while running on desktop, instead
the menu bar itself was bigger and in this 2nd row there was an unlabeled button.
Giving this button a node creates an error on the pocket pc, but having menues after this one in the root creates the "|" separator just as seen in many programs.

Just call me a :sign0104: If this is already written somewhere.

No, this hasn't yet been posted...

I see your proble and present a possible solution:
instead of + and - (wich result in a separator), you could use (+) and (-), in this case being the first letter NOT the minus sign, it should present it self correctly.

PS: I' not sure if this wasn't suposed to be posted in the Questions forum....

it wasnt supposed to be a question, more informing about my recent discovery
If it would be possible to add a menu item @ runtime, it could be defined with Chr(45) - like having quots in a string... dunno

edit:// having spaces in the menu button string label " - " is also an option

Althought you cant create menuitems in runtime, you CAN rename them....thus being able to use the char(45) as you posted...

oh yeah - cable guy : always 1 thought ahead (meant to be positive)

unfortunally it generates an exeption

btw: havin spaces also makes buttons bigger which is a nice side-effect for the click'in user....
