hex is exactly right.
This is one of the main reasons I dislike auto detection. After the initDialog in your dialog executes, then auto detection goes through and resets all the controls. Causing what you see.I scanned my source tree and found the following:--.Application~autoDetection(.FALSE)-- The above doesn't allow public routines to be used!So it's been commented out, but it was a long ago so can't remember the details. So the app is using the default behaviour and the setText already in place is working. But the code I just posted is also using the default behaviour but doesn't work. Guess I need to fiddle around with autoDetection...Staffan
