Adding "Far-East Characters" support in an existing project/application
Posted on 2002-04-19
I have a project that now needs to support Japanse language & characters. As far as I know, Delphi5 VCL TEdit and other controls in my existing project doesn't support Unicode, so it will not be possible to enter characters into these controls.
Can anyone enlight me what to do with all this?
Do I need to replace all controls in my project with Unicode controls and replace all string types with WideStrings? Will that do or is it more?
How does japanese developers do? is there a special version of Delphi that supports UniCode?
Can my project be recompiled on a japanese Delphi5 if so?
Is there a way to enable input of unicode in a TEdit control during runtime with Win API by setting/sending any value to the EditBox window handle?
