multilingual file saving and skins

P: 2
hey

i have a project of developing a multilingual keyboard for indic scripts. i have created this keyboard and it types on an attached editor. now when i save the file with indic script it saves it as a word file.

the problem is that after saving when i open the saved file i see question marks(?) instead of the indic text. plz help n any suggessions are welcome. i really have to submit this software in a few days.

also i want to put skins for my application. is there some software available which will do this with minimum code. i have tried few s/w but some dont work with menus and MDI form both of which are present in my application.

It sounds as though you haven't set the font for the text in the Word document.

As far as "skins" are concerned, I'd recommend you try the search box (at the top-right of the page) - pretty sure the topic has been mentioned here before.

hey , i have set font of Textbox in my editer as the script in which i want to type. But after saving, font changes to courier new. eg for typing Hindi language i set font to Mangal and after saving font becomes courier new on opening the word document.
Is there any other font to be set?

How are you transferring the text from the textbox? The font setting in the textbox simply tells it how to interpret and display what is stored in it. If you copy the info elsewhere, you will need to copy any necessary information about the information, such as the desired font.

For instance, when you access the .Text property of a textbox, all you get is a string - there is no font information in it. If it's a unicode string, then things might be different I suppose, but it sounds as though you're dealing with ASCII.
