Hi to all,
I'm converting some old InstallShield projects built in 5.5 into 6.31
Old projects had a composite SetTitle splitted in many rows (till nine!) depending on some processing (in details it search for already installed products and, if found, it displays their data in the main window).
I discovered (by testing) IS 6.31 SetTitle support a maximum of 3 carriage return ("\n").
First of all why?
Then, is there a simple way to go round this limitation obtaining the same result or have I to change way to show the user more lines?

Thanks to all,
ciao Giuseppe

Well nine lines is huge and three lines seems more than adequate.

In any case, I don't know of a way around this, so it's probably best to just re-work your content and/or use a different method.

A workaround might be using one or multiple bitmaps that can be placed on the background window.
