In a file, I have a $DisplayExpression that reads:
The two attribute values are displaying correctly but the string displays as:
I’ve tried to clarify things by adding parenthesis:
and I’ve copy-pasted the expression into and out of BBEdit to verify the quotations aren’t curly (even though I think the display expression box in the inspector won’t accept curly).
I’ve also tried the expression in a sample file and it works. A near identical expression was also working an hour ago in my work file. (I simply inverted the attribute order around the colon.)
So I’m stumped and wondering if anyone has a suggestion about what else might be causing the semi-colons to appear now?
correction: The display expression that was (and still is) working is:
So I guess my question is why the expression I want to use is generating semi-colons?
I’ve also tried replacing the colon in the string with a double hyphen (–) and that revised expression also produces semicolons.
