Error description

  • Problem
    The presence of tabs in strings can mean that they don't display
    correctly when appearing in message dialogs (e.g. ack,
    messageBox etc.)
    
    To Reproduce
    Execute DXL such as the following (the tab is between the ':'
    and the next quote):
    
    '
    string s = 'abc'
    string msg = 'Release : ' s '.'
    ack msg
    '
    
    Possible Workarounds
    Try not to use tabs.

    Using tabs in strings can omit subsequent strings from
    display in message dialogs
    

Problem conclusion

  • After the fix, the whole string is displayed correctly on
    the acknowledgement box.
    
    Also, checked that strings that didn't have any tab
    characters displayed correctly on message boxes as before.
