so #win.choice text(choice$+" "+str$(index)) does not work producing error Message not understood: #asTextd in both single and double click sub. old-fashioned #win.choice choice$+" "+str$(index) works.
But should it work? I would really appreciate if there is some preliminary design text along saying "all objects" (or may be "these objects") "should support methods text(), (...)" so we see if it should work at all. (it would serve as a nice checklist of things that shoud work but don't, yet - as well)
Search in BAS folder for "text(" end up with SPIRALS.BAS that uses text() to change window caption in TEXT window. I just could confirm that in window of type WINDOW it does the same But is it even supposed to work in statictext I do not know.
