How do you put tabs in the log


I was wondering how to insert tabs into the logs using the log function. For example I have something like this: log “some text” & tab & “some more text”.

Instead of insterting a tab it inserts the tab character.

Thanks for the help.

You can’t add a tab to the standard eggPlant log – it’s a tab-delimited file, so adding a tab to its contents would mess up the format. You could add a string like “MYTEMPTAB” and then post-process the file and convert the string to a tab. Or you could modify the logging so that it writes out to a separate file and you can put whatever you want in it.
