Default & symbol does not show up.

Hi I am using vs2008 and was trying to make a simple application. One thing my application was trying to do was display the "&" symbol in a label through C# code(even if I just use the properties window and put an & symbol).

The problem is that the symbol will not show up. The label will be just blank.

If I use any other symbol it works just fine.

So what am I missing. I even tried to escape it but the compiler did not like that.

Thanks

'&' indicates a keyboard shortcut for the following letter.
Just double it up ('&&') to get it to appear.

That worked thanks.

Ah that's right(it's been a while since I made windows applications I mostly do web).

Even knowing that it "&" was they keyboard shortcut I would have thought it only would work for like the name property and not for any string you make.
