Change font in HelpProvider popups

P: n/a
Hello,

I have an application in VB 2005 that uses HelpProvider control to
display popup descriptions of UI controls via HelpButton. It works OK,
but it shows messages in a wrong character set, so the foreign
characters don't show properly. Is there a way to change the
font/character set of those messages (either globally or from within my
application)?
Thank you for the answers,

Have you tried with setting the CurrentUICulture?

Thanks for the help. I have tried setting
My.Application.ChangeUICulture("sl-SI") and
System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICul ture = New
System.Globalization.CultureInfo("sl") in Load event of each form that
uses popup help, but the encoding is still wrong. I also have my system
locale set to Slovenian and my application neutral language to
"Slovenian (Slovenia)".
Any other suggestions about what I could try?

I am not sure, but the culture is handled by CurrentUICulture and
CurrentCulture. Just try setting these two. If it makes no difference, then
it looks like this control does not support localization!!
