After converted the PB5 to PB11, I found that the Chinese character doesn't
show correctly in font type "MS Sans Serif", And it's look O.K. if change
the fonts type to "Terminal". But that will make the screen looks awful if
the data was in English.

Currently the data type we used to store the chinese character was in "char"
using an ANSI format. It's too much effort to convert the data from Big5 to
Unicode.

Does anyone know what is the work around solution for this?

FWIW: Try the "Tahoma" font as MS changed their O/S's and "office" products
a long time ago - dropping SS and Arial.

Chris, thanks for the replied.

I changed the font to "Tahoma", It still not display correctly. I found out
if I turn on the column's autosize height. The chinese character display
correctly for all the font type. But the screen layout changed. :(

The column become gray in color if it have no value stored.

Not sure anyone have other suggestion or not.

Regards

I would not recommend using A.S.H. on data entry columns. I have found
in the past that it messes up the display. This is a great feature for
reports (display only) DW objects though. I would suggest that you us a DWO
that is customized for Chinese display or write some code to increase the
various column's height when the user switches languages. We have to do this
sometimes in Canada when changing from English to French because of the
higher vertical space required for the accented characters (especially
capitals).
