The following code when placed within code tags looks properly when viewed in PREVIEW but once the actual post is made it then interprets the code and creates a button instead of keeping the actual code as pure text in the CODE TAG box on older versions of UBB. But the current version here seems to "almost" treat it correctly.

It is still word wrapping the code box instead of creating a scrolling bar. Is this a user option to disable or how can I prevent the word wrapping?

Code
Function SelectFile( )
  Dim $objSHELLexec, $CMD, $objSHELL
  $SelectFile=""
  $CMD='mshta.exe "about:<input type=file id=FILE><script>FILE.click();new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject").GetStandardStream(1).WriteLine(FILE.value);close();resizeTo(0,0);</script>" '
  $objSHELL=CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
  $objSHELLexec=$objSHELL.Exec($CMD)
  $SelectFile=$objSHELLexec.StdOut.ReadLine( )
EndFunction

Is it possible to disable word wrap in the CODE tag without editing CSS or other forum software files? I've looked around at a few different posts but did not find what I was looking for.

In a sample post here
http://www.ubbcentral.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/258281/code-tag-parsing-ubb#Post258281

The code should not wrap. The line that starts like this
$CMD='mshta.exe
is at column 197 and should force a scroll bar in the code box not wrap. It seems others either want/like it to wrap but for code I want it 100% exactly as it is in the actual text editor it came from.

Thanks for updates on if this is possible and how.

Cheers

In UBB.threads 7.5.x series, the CSS white-space value for "pre" is undeclared. And thus, it was treated as "pre{white-space:normal;}". Its default value.

Here on UBBCentral while running the current UBB.threads 7.6.0 Preview, the /styles/common.css file had been completely rewritten from the ground up. The "pre" value was updated/changed, though there was nothing wrong with it in the first place.

You've found a bug -- thank you!
The change has been reverted.

---

The value that was added to 7.6.0 Preview was:
pre{margin:0;white-space:pre-wrap;}

It has now been reverted back to just:
pre{margin:0;}

Again, thank you catching this and pointing it out.
