    comma's in label constant stops display

    When i want a label with a constant text with a comma in it,
    the textdisplay stops 1 char before the comma.

    example;

    L75,015,714,300,030,235,180,090,12,"Georgia","=Hel lo, Darling","CENTER"

    only displays Hell

    Is this a problem with the skinfile parser ? (comma within quoted field)

    I've a similar problem with ":" as final character.
    L13,403,88,115,20,255,255,255,16,"RR LCD","=CPU TEMP:","Left"
    Only shows "CPU". Deleting the ":" shows all the text.

    comma "," is a seperator, don't use it.

    as is
    ";" "¦¦" and probably ":"


    so don't use them in labels.

    I get what you mean. But this is a Bug Tracker thread, so i felt
    obligated to report it.
    (a comma should only be a seperator when not in quotes)

    yeah, this is a known limitation.. I just didn't have the patience to scan for commas within quotes.. I can add that in like 5 minutes... may be I'll feel like doing it sometime soon..

    Well I think you have to read the whole post.

    He wants a label to read Hello, Darling, but all it says is Hell.

    I don't think it's a problem with the software and the comma at all. I just think the software has reacted to his subconcious thoughts.

    I've already improved support for parsing commas inside of quotes for next release.. but it is ONLY for labels.
