Anyone know if VEE objects support Arabic characters? I'm assuming they do as part of being a Microsoft Windows application but if anyone has a screenshot of a VEE app running in Arabic I'd really appreciate it!
Anyone managed to get VEE objects to show both English and Arabic ( or another non-latin character set ) at the same time?
Limited, but a surprise!. For a start you need an OS that supports the characters - at that time it meant Windows 7 Ultimate or Enterprise ( same level, different licensing model ). I just tried a sample I made ( attached ) on Win 8.1 Pro which does seem to support the characters.
What you'll see ( on Win 7 ) is that some items show the characters, others not. The surprise for me is that under Win 8.1, with no special language support installed, this looks as though it works remarkably well and can probably provide all you need. You'll see the main font used is called Arabic Transparent. I can't profess to see anything more in the script than squiggles, so it might still be meaningless to an Arabic reader - it would be useful to know if it works in a real deployment.
