Tabs/Tabsheets not Unicode Compliant?

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm writing a Unicode overlay for a non-Unicode compliant piece of software. I was planning on using Tabs and Tabsheets, but it appears as though the captions on the Tabsheets aren't unicode compliant? The other controls (labels and buttons) on my overlay are working perfectly.

If needs be, I can replace the tabsheet with buttons/labels, but that requires some messing around to keep the button pressed down when that particular "tab" is selected.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I recently gave this link for a similar problem.


Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

I just checked and it looks like the problem might be a simple font problem. After creating you Tab control, use

GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 400, 0, "Lucida sans Unicode")

for instance, or use your favorite Unicode font instead. It defines the font used for every TabItems in this Tab.

Is that what you needed?

Thank you both for your help.

Martin, I had already adapted your code to make the tabs coloured, but never thought of using it to fix this problem.

jchd: Your solution works perfectly. Thanks for taking the time to look into it.

I had already decided to write Tabs out of my program. Now to get them back in.

Cheers,

D
