File names with ampersands display incorrectly in tabs

Post by nabsltd » Thu Jul 12, 2018 8:32 pm

Any filename containing an ampersand (&) displays incorrectly in the tab. The ampersand is swallowed and the next character in the filename is underlined.

This is caused by the Windows control being used to display the text having the bit set that tells it to parse the keyboard shortcut information, which is triggered by an ampersand. If it is too difficult to unset that bit, then the solution is to double the ampersand in any text that is to be displayed in the control.
