Re: How to print “@“ Symbol in the XML label node?

You could try replacing it with the chr code.  "abc"+chr(64)+"" ?

8.4 Chr (ch As Integer) As String
Performs the inverse of the ASC function: returns a one-character string whose character has the specified ASCII, or control. Example:
print chr(35) 'prints a number-sign #
Using CHR, you can assign quote-marks (normally used as string-delimiters) to strings. The ASCII code for quotes - is 34. So A$=CHR(34) assigns the value " to A$.

Hi destruk,

Thanks for the reply.

We have tried the solution you provided but it still not showing "@" character of email address in the XML Label Node (Scene graph).
It successfully prints "@" character on the terminal.[/font]
Please provide any other solution for this scenario.

Re: How to print “@“ Symbol in the XML label node?

I don't think your problem is that the Label node does not display the "@" character -- because it does. Most likely, you're not passing an "@" character into the Label node's text field.

Try a simple experiment: create a plain Label node in your Scene, with a hard-coded value containing an "@" character, i.e. not read from your XML and not computed in any way.
