How to display an Up-Arrow using text

P: n/a

Is it possible to display an up-arrow in a Label, TextBox, ListView,
DataGrid, etc without using a graphic ? I keep trying the characters
that should represent arrows and im getting little squares.

help!
thanks

Set the label's font to 'Webdings' and press 5 for up arrow and 6 for down
arrow. With font 'Wingdings 3', type P for up arrow and Q for down arrow.

Is this what you are looking for?

Thanks for the answer. I does answer my question but doesn't solve my
problem. You see, im trying to do it in a datagrid. And on the compact
framework (and on the regular framework too i think), you cant
individually change the font of a column. So if I change the font of
the whole grid to something else, all the other columns will become
unreadable. I looked into using a inheriting the datagridtextboxcolumn
class, but the functions necessary to do the override are not visible
in .net cf

It seems more and more likely that I will have to buy a third-party
grid.

Unless anyone has any other ideas?

Sorry, didn't realize it is for the DataGrid.
