Trying to show alpha "α" symbol in the ring control string along with other regular characters

Solved!

Hi,

 

I have a ring control and I change its string value as needed. Some strings need to have α and/or ß symbol in it. I can show α symbol if I change font style to "Symbol" but it changes read out of other regular strings.

Is there a different ALT Code for alpha in application fonts or is there a font that supports standard characters and symbols?

 

 Thank you for reading.

Use Windows Character Map to find the α for your font.

Hi Zou,

 

I already tried doing that. Font shown in the string indicator is Arial.

I know the ALT code is ALT+ 224 (α).

Are you using a non-English Windows?

That α is Unicode.  Choose a difference font, or use unicode.
