%st - String

Purpose

To insert a variable string.

Syntax

winio@('%N.mst', string)
character *(*) string     (input)

Modifiers

Grave accent (`) - right justifies the string in the field.

Description

Lays out a string out in a field N average characters wide and m deep. m is optional and defaults to 1 but N must be specified The string is read-only (unlike %rs, the string cannot be changed by the user). It can, however, be changed by the programmer. The change is followed by a call to window_update@(string) in order to make a change visible. The string is re-drawn each time the window is renewed. (%`rs provides a similar effect.)

When used as the last item in a status bar, the control will automatically expand to fill the remaining space.

Example

winio@('%20st', str)
