To subscribers of the xforms list from Marisa Giancarla <> :


I am trying to change the text of a text box dynamically (well really
just once at setup time) but I keep getting core dumps. I don't want to put the
full text of the box into the label from within fdesign (it will be several
lines long, and I don't know how to enter multi-line labels in fdesign for one
thing), but when I try to dirly set the "->label" element of the textbox object
to point to my new string constant, the application core dumps if the string
contains any embedded newlines or \n characters. The manual says I should be
able to do this, so I am a little confused...
