I'm using Delphi 4 and I like to find out if there's a way that I can be able to enter unicode characters in the edit box, buttons, labels, and the like?

Hi misidro,

Try see project options Version info click at "Locale ID" press F1 to make the apropriated changes.
Adjust the property OEMConvert.

Good luck.

Hello Radler,

I tried your suggestion but I still could not enter unicode characters inside the edit box.  I guess it has something to do with Global IME?
I don't know yet how to activate IME inside Delphi 4.  I guess there are other work around to this problem.

misidro,

you have hit a very sensible point here. Delphi's support for Unicode is extremly lame because Win9x doesn't support it. Only special version for japanese etc. can handle IMEs at all. With WinNT/W2K you don't have these problems. But I suppose this will not help you very much.

Actually, forget about using the VCL as it is currently for an everyday Win9x installation and Unicode. You really have to roll your own controls. Believe me, I know what I'm talking about. Just today I released version 2.0 of my Unicode library (GPL'ed freeware with source). Visit my homepage www.lischke-online.de to download. Additionally, I'm working on a syntax edit control which happens to work with Unicode. It is still not ready, but you can have a copy if you want.

Ciao, Mike
