    Help - text on Hover Button


    I have created a hover button using an applet, but the text is too wide for
    the button and I wish to split it into two lines.
    How do I do this?

    app tag removed
    <!--- applet code="fphover.class" codebase="./" width="120" height="40">
    <param name="textcolor" value="#FFFFFF">
    <param name="text" value="This line is too long">
    <param name="effect" value="glow">
    <param name="url" valuetype="ref" value="LookUpMenuTest.htm">
    <param name="color" value="#FF0000">
    <param name="hovercolor" value="#FFFF00">
    </applet>
    <!--- --->

    The following does not work:
    <param name="text" value="This line is"+<br>+"too long">

    Barca,

    I'm not overly familiar with these applets but I've had a similar situation
    in VB and solved it using a constant for carriage return line feed. vbCrLf.
    If available to you I would concat that in your value.

    Hi Barca,

    Try using this:

    <param name="text" value="This line is \n too long">

    Java uses "\n" to start a new line. This might work in your case.

    That's because you're passing an HTML code to a Java applet. I don't know
    if this will work(the applet may not support it), but give it a try....

    <param name="text" value="This line is\ntoo long">

    \n is the newline character... but as I said, it depends on how the applet
    will handle it.
