International Fonts / Visual Studio Resources
Posted on 2002-03-12
I need to support international character sets (such as Japanese, Kanji) in my application. Believing the "believe in MBCS and everything will be allright".
Now the first hurdle: VC++ 6 hardwires "Sans Serif" for all dialogs (including property pages); but this font doesn't support any of the exotic character sets (at least on the systems I have here). Is it possible to
a) install a Sans Serif with asian character sets
b) do some global run-time substitution system wide for the Sans Serif font? I tried with the W2K font substitutes, but I was less then successful
c) any other idea?
First I'm interested in at least a development solution (so I can take the next hurdle - a database). However, a production-enabled solution would be fine.
