UNICODE X MFC

Hello!

I have MFC 4.2 (I guess) and I would like to know if it is possible to use Unicode font encoding.
I need to show Korean characters.

In afirmative case, how difficult would it be?

Thanks in advance,

Hederglan

Yes, it is possible. There is a mfc42u.dll which is the UNICODE version of mfc42.dll

You have to define the UNICODE and _UNICODE in your project settings.
You can use an of the TCHAR derived types (LPTSTR, etc), CString too, be carefull not to use char * when trying to display Korean chars.
You can also use functions like mbstowcs(..) which transforms a nonUNICODE string into a UNICODE one, and wcstombs which does the reverse.

If you find a MFC42U.DLL in your system directory after the custom installation you can do it. (other DLLs are needed for UNICODE applications to work but this one should be there).

All strings are based on TCHAR and not CHAR. Constants can be defined as _T("This is the string") or L"This is the string". Latter is unicode only whereas the first can be compiled with ANSI or UNICODE. And for normal string operations ie strlen you need to use the wide version wstrlen.

What I exactly need to do is showing Korean characters in a TextBox.
This data is read from a text file and stored in an object of the class X...
In the class X there is a member that stores the sequency of characters in a string (string MemberThatStoresTheSequencyOfCharacters)...
May I use string?
Using string do I have to define UNICODE and _UNICODE?

I guess anyway I will have to install those MFC libraries to Unicode...

Thanks.

You can use wstring.
