NI Package Builder - Improve MRU file name display (first underscore is missing)

Status: New

Cosmetic / Minor issue

 

I have a solution with one underscore character in its file name. It is properly displayed in the window title bar, but undescore is missing in most recently used files, under File menu.

I made some complementary tests, with dummy solution files named Undescore_One.pbsUndescore_One_Two.pbs and Undescore_One_Two_Three.pbs. Only the first underscore in the file name is missing in menu display:

I am using NI Package Builder 20.6.0.1227.

I bet is due to an old Windows menu standard that is no longer used. The underscore was used to denote the underlined letter for the keyboard shortcut to select the item in a menu. A reason I like spaces 😁

@CL_eisenwr: it was also my hypothesis. I don't really like underscore in file name, but I inherit here from an existing naming convention.

 

I just check in TestStand 2020, this kind of file naming is properly displayed.
