SetWindowText is removing & charatcter in a string.
Im passing "& temp1 & temp2" string as a parameter to SetWindowText("& temp1 & temp2"). not sure why it sets the text as temp1 temp2. & character is getting removed.

Re: SetWindowText is removing & charatcter in a string.
That is because for certain classes of windows, the '&' denotes that the next letter is the "shortcut" letter (the letter that is underlined in a button, for example).

SetWindowText("&& temp1 && temp2");
