Getting Unicode from Glyph Index in Win 2K printer device driver.

In Windows 2K Printer Device Driver I am getting Glyphs Index from ?DrvTextOut?. Is it possible to get Unicode directly instead of Glyph Index?

If we can?t get the Unicode directly is there a way of converting the Glyph Index to Unicode.

I have done conversion of the Glyph Index to Unicode in Win 9x Printer Driver by opening the font file and then going to ?cmap? table and doing the conversion. This is a tedious process.

Is there a better way of doing this in Win 2k? Are there some new functions / DDI which will facilitate my work. Basically I want to use the new functionality given by Win 2K printer Device Driver. Please reply ASAP. Its Urgent.

amitd: if you already have the code, use it in Windows 2K too.

shulasunil: Use GetFontData to query the whole font, you donot need the font name. If you readlly need the font name, enumate all physical fonts instead, get a checksum for each, and compare with the data returned by GetFontData.

Hey Guys I found the font file name and amitd you can directly get the character from "STROBJ" structure passed as a parameter. In this structure pwszOrg gives you UNICODE string. All the best!!!!

Hello!

I'm working on the same type of thing you were doing in 2001 and I have a similar problem.  Doesn't seem like pwszOrg always has Unicode, seems to be an index of some sort.  Any ideas?
