Wingdings font: some characters are not displayed correctly
Posted on 2011-10-11
I create a form with a label having font Wingdings, and programmatically set the text to ChrW(&H8B) . According to Charmap, 0x8B is zero in a black circle. However, on the form the symbol does not show up. The same happens with 0x8C, but then 8D shows up correctly, then 0x8E again does not... It's the same in Windows XP and Windows 7, in VB6 and VB.Net 2010. Why these characters don't work?
