Reporting With Unicode RRS feed

  • Question

  • User143067745 posted

    First of all I apologize for my english.

    I am developing an asp.net application withe .NET Frame work 3.5 and Sql Server 2008. I am using RDLC for reporting. I have to genereate reports in 'Hindi , so I have to use Unicode.

    While Running the application and  getting report in browser:

     in aspx page it shows all unicode characters properly no matter what font I have set for it.If font is Times New Roman or Arial Unicode MS output is same and proper(in the browser). But exporting it to PDF it depends on what font I have set for it. When I have set FontTimes New Roman it shows some thing like  ???????? instead of Unicode Characters and when I set Font to Arial Unicode MS it works but still threre is some problem with few characters.

    1. As we have many fonts preinstalled in our windows systems (like Arial, Times New Roman  etc.) , Is there any separate set of Fonts specially for Unicode? 

    2. If There is a separate set of fonts for Unicode  then what Font are preinstalled on system?(Which font I should use in my web application that it should appear properly on all system, users must not need to install any kind of fonts to see the report on their machine).

    3. If There is not a separate set of fonts for Unicode (as it shows all Unicode characters in aspx page properly no matter what font I choose ) then what is problem with exporting reports to the pdf?

    And finally  It may be  I have some misconcept/miscode about uincode and reporting, then  What should I do to generate reports that can be  converted in pdf with Unicode ?( I need reports in both formate aspx and pdf). or I should use some other tools for reporting.

    Does anyone have any idea to generate report with Unicode in asp.net?
