  • How do I set the character of button text to a Unicode character that can't be typed on a keyboard? For example, Arial includes Greek characters, one of which is "?", represented as 'ϕ' in HTML and a Unicode value of 'U+03D5'. How do I assign this character to the text of the button? (using code, not cut and paste)

  • If by "using code" you mean "using events", then this works:

    Button Set Text to "?"

    If you meant "by numeric code of a character", add Browser object and try this:

    Variable charCode=981
    Button Set Text to Browser.ExecJS("String.fromCharCode("& charCode &")")

  • Thanks for the response. The latter option is what I'm looking for, and works here. But being new to Construct, does adding a Browser object add much overhead to a project? The docs seem to say that the browser object simply exposes capabilities that are already present.

  • If you are talking about the project size or performance, then no, adding Browser object doesn't affect that.
