Please open the string resource table of the ProfStudio sample in the Visual Studio resource editor and find the IDR_PROFSTUDIOTYPE string in it. This string contains the following text:

\nProfStudio child window\nProfStudio child window
That is why the MDI child frame windows in the ProfStudio sample application are displaying the ProfStudio child window text in their captions and MDI tabs. Now you can change the IDR_PROFSTUDIOTYPE resource string to the following value and then run the ProfStudio sample application:

We are currently using version 2.54. We have tried renaming IDR_PROFSTUDIOTYPE to single character string but it diddn’t work. Which version should we use in order to make single character string visible or is there any workaround?

In the ProfStudio sample, Whidbey MDI tabs are used. We changed the IDR_PROFSTUDIOTYPE resource string in this sample application and made the MDI child frames displaying a very short single character title in the Whidbey style MDI tabs. We didn’t see any problems with short tab item text. We guess you are using some old Prof-UIS version or this issue may depend on other conditions not mentioned in your message: Windows OS version, desktop theme, default GUI font name.
