VB Resource Editor is not displaying the arabic text property and the RightToLeft isnt working on my window.
Someone tell me why?

I use LoadResString(ID), but when it loads the ID, my window pops up all these question marks and ugly texts.
How can I avoid this with the arabic font???
Thanks

unfortunately vb6 is a non-unicode language. to be able to display arabic in vb6, your default non-unicode language should be arabic.

here's what you should do:

1. go to control panel>regional and language options
2. select the "advanced" tab
3. select arabic from the dropdown menu under "Language for Non-Unicode programs"

hope this helps

cheers

p.s. i assumed that you already have arabic input language installed. if you cant find arabic in the dropdown combo.. then u dont have arabic installed...

here's what you should do:

1. go to control panel >regional and language options
2. go to languages tab
3. check the box: install files for complex script and right to left languages (including thai) this will copy the necessary files into ur computer and will restart ur computer.
4. go to details, and add arabic input language

hope this helps
