How to write a horizontal line insapscript(not using &ULINE&)

Hello experts,

I am presently having a problem on why my statement &ULINE& does is always shorted than the width of my MAIN window no matter what I do. So now I want to experiment on how to write a horizontal line without using the ULINE statement. By the way, the width of my MAIN window is 78 CH. A while ago I experimented with the length of the uline but no matter what length I gave it its always shorter than the width of my main window.

Again, thank you guys for your time and take care!

    Hi Viraylab,

    The <b>&ULINE(X)&</b> may solve your problem.

    Specify proper value for X which can fill your main window length.As you specified that your main window size as 78,try &ULINE(78)&.

    Without using ULINE,then you need to write your line with some dashes which fits main window length.

    Try as follows in your layout

    <b>/: -


    </b>

    But this is not advisable.

    Thanks,

    Vinay

    HI Viraylab,

    I think the paragraph format you are using is having some indentation (Some space in front of the line starting and end of the line).

    Create a new paragraph format which doesn't have any space in front of the line and at the end of the line.

    Regards,

    Ravi
