Subject: [perl-win32-gui-users] Displaying the "&" in Labes with -noprefix => 1,

I am using the Label as a status bar, when I turn off the -noprefix=>1 option
to display the & character, it removes the character and can not be escaped by \,
is there any solution. If not, what are the Style to make the TextFiled looks like
a status bar or sunken lable
 
$W->AddLabel(
       -text    => " Ready...",
       -name    => "StatusLabel",
       -left    => 10,
       -top     => $Global{MainWindow}->ScaleHeight-22,
       -width   => $Global{MainWindow}->ScaleWidth-10,
       -height  => 20,
        -noprefix => 1,
          -sunken   => 1, 
      -foreground    => $Color,
      -background => $BColor,
      -remstyle=>WS_BORDER|WS_THICKFRAME,
      -tabstop=>0,
      );
