Hi all,

We can write a project with Debug-Unicode mode and display text with Unicode format? Ex: Chinese or Japanese

Idea?

Thanks.

The font used by the control needs to support UNICODE.

See CreateFont and SetFont in help.

roughly
In Header file
CFont m_MyUnicodeFont;

in .cpp file
m_MyyUnicodeFont.CretaeFont(....);  // eg in constructor

GetDlgItem(IDC_MY_CONTROL)->SetFont(&m_MyUnicodeFont);  //after the window has been created, eg OnInitDialog

See this : KanjiFont : Display Chinese & Japanese characters on unicode & non-unicode systems
http://www.codeproject.com/gdi/kanjifont.asp

You may use ExtTextOutW or TextOutW etc. API functions in your Unicode project for 9x.

I am not sure.... confused from your explanation...

Are you looking for loading unicode files like : http://www.codeproject.com/file/ANSI-UNICODE_conversion.asp
OR : http://www.codeproject.com/file/utf16.asp

I agree with maheseh - confusion.


Do you want to display UNICODE in your app or inside visual studio?

VC Editor dn't support Unicode text. So we can't write Unicode text directly on Dialog resource of our project. We must load Unicode text from file, set those text to controls on runtime.

Get another resource editor that supports unicode. There are free alternatives (e.g. Visual Studio Express 2005).
