Escape Dollar Sign Expansion

I have a need to display a string of text Incuding $("LoadingIcon") in a Text Box however when no matter what I try this part of the string is returning null because of Dollar Sign Expansion. I have read this community article but it does not seem to be working for me.

https://community.qlik.com/t5/QlikView-App-Development/Stop-Dollar-Sign-Expansion-in-the-script-Esca...

In my script I have 

SET A = $("LoadingIcon") ;

 

However this just returns NULL.

 

Does anyone have any ideas?

 

Thanks,
Mark

Re: Escape Dollar Sign Expansion

I got the answer from the other article:

set vString = ~("LoadingIcon");

set vA = "=replace([vString],'~','$')";
