Message window in created Menu
« on: January 12, 2008, 06:01:43 PM »
Hy everyone!!
I created new menu.
Its working properly, I am just wondering something about message window, if anyone could know I will be very appreciative:

How to enter new row in message window?

I have 2 separate phrases who can standalone
menu item: TypeName [Hello](alert "Hello everyone\Hello Santa");;

I inserted backslash and semicolons but it still ask to press Enter lastly (without them I have to press it twice),
I tried with \n but it makes no difference.

Anyone knows solution?

Tooltips accept HTML code so you can use the <br> symbol to create a break between lines of text in the tip.
Perfection is not optional.
Everything will work just as you expect it to, unless your expectations are incorrect.

Thanks for the answer, but it did not make any change:


menu item-
Code: [Select]
TypeName           [Hello](alert "Hello everyone<br>Hello Santa")

I tried with blankspace before and after <br> but "Hello Santa" did not crossed in next row

(alert(strcat "Hellow Santa" "\nHellow Santa"))

or

(alert "Hellow Santa\nI've been bad . . .")

Sorry, for some reason I thought you wanted this for an ODCL tooltip ..

Seems like the problem is in code. Apparently I need to use a different technique other than an (alert) box.

(alert "Hellow Santa\nI've been bad . . .") would work fine when alert is called from a lisp routine.

I have to use other code, probably from acaddoc.lsp file, but I don"t know how to associate functions from lisp and menu files.
