Did you check button's Property Palette window? It should contain the "Label" property, so - set it.

I don't understand your second message, sorry.

Pretty sure you can have multi-line labels. You may need to write it in the style you want in notepad etc and then copy and paste

CHR(10) might do the trick, such as
set_item_property('button_name', label, 'Select' || chr(10) || 'Item');

It should. If you're using set_item_property you could just:
set_item_property('button_name', label, 'Select
Item');

It's just setting it in the property palette that's problem (I think, from memory) - hitting enter in there takes you to the next property.

Is the button big enough to display the label in two lines?

Some additional questions:
  • Which Forms version do you use?
  • Which option produced the single line result, i.e.
    "Select Item"
    instead of
    "Select
    Item"

    Was it the CHR(10) method, or a simple "Press Enter at the end of the Select"?

Try chr(13)||chr(10) which is the windows EOL. If that doesn't work then probably nothing does in 6i.

I just happen to have a 6i developer lying around. chr(10)||chr(13) and vice versa do not work.

Then I imagine there's no way to do this in 6i.

How about an image button, the one which would use a JPG/GIF that displays text in two lines?

What would you do with READ_IMAGE? I'm talking about button's Property Palette window.
