Hi,

I need to use GetCharacterPlacement API function to reorder a string
before adding it to a list box in a Hebrew system.

I couldn't get it to work (I always get a return value of 0).

Could anyone please help me with this ?

Thanks

Make sure that the lStructSize member of the GCP_Results structure is initialized to the structure size :

Results.lStructSize=sizeof(GCP_RESULTS);
