How to incorporate text and global values in the same text

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Mon Feb 18, 2008 5:03 pm

I'm trying to make a text box with two values in it - a current score and the high score. I want it to read "Score: 0/0" with the current score on the the left and the high on the right. Text boxes don't seem to want to take both strings and values at the same time, though. I tried with multiple text boxes, one for each part, but then there's a formatting issue because I don't know how to check how long the numbers are, and everything isn't placed correctly. Thoughts?

Use str() to convert numbers to strings, or use the & operator which converts anything which isn't a string to a string. Eg.:

"Score: " & currentscore & "/" & highscore
