Chinese characters into edit control
Posted on 2009-07-09
We are building a software for a company that deals with chinese people. the want a program is operated in English entirely, except one field. This field needs to store a name in chinese, using chinese symbols. We face the problem where once we enter some text using say Chinese Simplified, it looks fine up to the point when the control gets an <enter> . It's content here changes to "???" I assume this is due to the fact the the chinese symbols are stored as double-byte and this is the time when the conversion happens
We are using standard English version of Windows XP Pro
What are the choices ?
