Arabic & Persian EditBox

Hi.
My Question is about C++ Builder, But I thought I better ask it here (the same as Delphi problems)

How is it possible for me to have an arabic(or)persian input in an EDITBOX?

I have tried many things, but couldn't get the correct answer. because the characters are changed to persian, but they're not placed from right to left and all of them are Capital Letters. (they're not attached to eachother)

I will be so thankful.

I don't know much about arabic/persian language but maybe this will help:

Check the properties:

BiDiMode --> bdRightToLeft, bdRightToLeftNoAlign, bdRightToLeftReadingOnly --> available on an edit box but also on a form if you want everything to behave this way.

CharCase --> ecNormal or ecLowerCase --> available on your edit box...

ParentBiDiMode --> Check this if you want your edit boxes to use the BiDiMode set by your form.


Does this help a little or did you already knew this?

Anyway, have a nice day! :)

You must enter text in Unicode format.C++ builder 5 not contains unicode.Try TntComponent pack contains unicode.Download at http://home.ccci.org/wolbrink/tnt/delphi_unicode_controls.htm .Then you must change font to Arial,Lucida Sans unicode or other new standard fonts which contains unicode.
