This was a rough morning, all right! Especially since it was so difficult to insert an ampersand (&) in that freakin’ label!

So the problem is that & is used for the mnemonic function (you know… in case you want the File menu to pop up when you press the ‘F’ key on your keyboard, you would name the File menu as ‘&File’).

Therefore, having a label text called ‘a&b’ would require:

1. disable the menmonic function: UseMnemonic = False

2. change the label’s text to a&&b

I admit it’s kind of lame to have a post about this, but you just might wonder one day why your label isn’t listening 🙂
