I apologize in advance if this has been properly explained elsewhere, but I couldn’t really find the complete solution in the various posts. I’m trying to allow the entering (in TextEditor) and displaying of text in Hindi font. I could use a specific freeware Indian font for that, but I thought that now that Unicode supports Indian fonts and it’s available by default on both Mac and Windows I should rather go for that option.
So I activated the Asian languages options on my XP machine and lo and behold I was able to type Hindi script on Notepad, VC++, etc… by just selecting the Hindi keyboard in the Language bar. However, when I type any text in a Juce label (TextEditor), nothing happens. The cursor shakes, but stays at the same place, like the character is not accepted.
Could you please let me know what I need to do? I saw some posts about defining a specific default font for that component, but I wouldn’t know which one to specify. This is all quite magical to me, because when I type text in the Notepad, the selected font is Lucida, yet it displays Hindi script, so I don’t know whether the Lucida font has been expanded with Indian characters, or it’s a separate font that is used in the background.
Thanks for your help!
