    A multi-pad glass resistive plate chamber (RPC) with digital read-out was placed inside a superconducting solenoid to investigate possible effects of strong magnetic fields on this detector. The RPC operated in avalanche mode was tested with cosmic muons. No influence was observed for field strengths up to 5 T.
