Problem with [tosymbol]

Jul 09 2011 | 1:23 pm


Does anyone have experience getting a message including a forward slash ( / ) to output in quotes from a [tosymbol] object? I’m sure there’s a simple solution to what I’m doing, but I can’t figure it out. In the below patch I’m looking for the end result: "_/16" in a message box.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I just edited the above message as the first example here (the second one there in the link) was with space as well.

No problem,
Happy patching to you, too! ;)
