Backslash, twice


#1

Const Lab1 = “/Hütten Unser\ (Schweiz)”

MsgBox(Lab1): /Hütten Unser\ (Schweiz)
Well actually I see \ \ , but not here? (see attachment).
Who’s to blame? Any other chars where this might happen?


#2

The text show is rendered as HTML, so the back slash has special meaning.

Try this:

Lab1 = "/Hütten Unser\ (Schweiz)"

\ is the HTML entity for backslash.


#3

still confused, see attachment.

Label1.textContent = Lab1
MsgBox(Label1.textContent)

and now it works with single “”, didn’t make any change or update.


#4

textContent sets the value as text - so gets treated as text.

The MsgBox displays its content as HTML - so the HTML entity is processed turned into a backslash.
