Hi Mouser,

thanks for the prompt reply. But I'm unable to download your files, I get a 404 error.

I spotted a minor bug (or feature?) in the latest version. Ampersand doesn't get rendered in an item name. Instead, the next character gets underlined, when displayed as a bar title.

Try putting 2 of em like &&.  I think that can fix it if I understand what you want.

That is the documented way of 'assigning' hotkeys (alt-<char>) to controls in applications, and the documented way to have it display an actual & in there is to double it.
I can only assume it's a feature of PBOL, not a bug, as this is fully supported by the Borland C++ runtime (for the 'Classic' Win32 API) that PBOL is running on.

Thank you. Indeed, that did the trick. Sorry, know next to nothing (OK, nothing) about Borland C++.

Well, it is actually a feature of the Classic Windows controls, as used by all Windows (standard) programs and many, many applications until Windows Vista and .NET applications became some of the Windows standard tools.
