VB Application GUI text box will not accept Polish characters
Posted on 2003-02-19
I am working with an application whose user interface is written in VB. If I wish to input a new record that happens to contain Polish chatacters, it will not accept them into the blank field - but instead converts them to 'normal' text for e.g the Polish character that looks like an L with a line through it now becomes a regular L - this is even before anything is committed to the underlying database - so the problem has nothing to do with the database support for Polish character sets.
Is it the case that the Application in question has a default font that does not support Polish characters, and would the vendor need to reconfigure the default font to permit Polish characters to be types into the text boxes?
