Some Unicode characters not displaying RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an application running on PSC Falcon 4220 device running Windows CE.Net 4.2.  When I try to display several unicode characters (9650,9658,9660,9668) in the application, they will only display as square boxes.  I ran a test with other unicode characters such as the mathematical operators (8706-8805) and they do display properly.  I have an Arial.TTF file on the handheld and am using it to display these characters.  This same font file works fine on a PPC 2003 device.

    Does anyone know why some characters that I assume are in the font file would not display under this version of the OS?

    Thanks.

  • Hi cmccomsey,

    As far as I know, the proper way is using a device localized in the language. Installing font is not the proper way to do it, it may has some problem.

  • This is beacuse yours device need language settings configuration .

    For example if yours device doesn't have arabic langauge device , you will face the same issue , even though you follow the same approach .

    Once you select the arabic language ( localization) of device it would display as per yours expectation .
