KeyFormat – text picture format

The key text may be formatted with a simple picture format such as:

ch.Set 'kpic' 'XXXXXXXX;'

To force the text to wrap into the space allowed for 8 ‘X’ characters. If the picture does not end with a semi-colon, the text will be truncated if necessary and terminated with an ellipsis character (…) to indicate that it has been clipped. Insertion characters are allowed as for numeric formats, so a format such as ‘SKU:XX/XXXX’ might be appropriate for a set of product codes of the form ‘HL3287’.
