    Posted: 25 Dec 18 at 1:51PM
Hello,

I'm trying to write Unicode character in the table like this. (I'm using DLL version of QP)

DPL.SetOrigin(1);
DPL.AddCJKFont(5);//Try to use Korean character
DPL.SetPageSize(L"A4");
DPL.SetMeasurementUnits(1);

DPL.SetTextSize(20);
DPL.DrawTextBox(10, 280, 190, 10, L"안녕하세요", 0); //It works

int id = DPL.CreateTable(6, 5);
DPL.SetTableBorderColor(id, 0, 0, 0, 0);
DPL.SetTableBorderWidth(id, 0, 0.2);
DPL.SetTableRowHeight(id, 1, 6, 10);
DPL.SetTableColumnWidth(id, 1, 5, 35);
DPL.SetTableCellAlignment(id, 1, 1, 6, 5, 4);
DPL.SetTableCellTextSize(id, 1, 1, 6, 5, 5);
DPL.SetTableCellTextColor(id, 1, 1, 6, 5, 0, 0, 0);

DPL.SetTableCellContent(id, 1, 1, L"1a가");
DPL.SetTableCellContent(id, 2, 1, L"2b나");
DPL.SetTableCellContent(id, 3, 1, L"3c다");
DPL.SetTableCellContent(id, 4, 1, L"4d라");
DPL.SetTableCellContent(id, 5, 1, L"5e마");
DPL.SetTableCellContent(id, 6, 1, L"6f바");

DPL.DrawTableRows(id, 10, 30, 100, 1, 6); //It shows only alphabet and number character, not Korean

How can I write Unicode character in the table?

Thank you in advance.

Hi sjnam07,

if you look into the online reference you'll see that content is handled as unicode (wchar):
https://www.debenu.com/docs/pdf_library_reference/SetTableCellContent.php
So you don't have to do any special things - strings are handled as unicode.
The only thing you have to put an eye on is to select a font which is able to represent characters in unicode format.

A problem can be your development environment.
If it's an older vb6 for example you have to convert thr strings to unicode first.

Cheers and welcome here,
Ingo

Cheers,
Ingo

Hello Ingo,

Thank you for fast reply.

I wonder what DPL.DrawTextBox() with Korean works, but SetTableCellContent() doesn't work. Both are in the same source code file encoded to unicode.
I'm using Visual Studio 2017 with MFC.

Do you have other clues?

Thank you
Sangjae

Like i've written:
Perhaps it's a korean font - not able to show unicode characters?
Cheers,
Ingo

Hello,

No, Korean characters, which are unicode, are not shown only in the table. Without table, Korean characters can be shown well.

i've tried the enhanced search function here on the page for you ;-)
Please have a look on the sample (regarding unicode) from AndrewC (R.I.P.):
http://www.quickpdf.org/forum/tables-and-columns_topic2058_post9631.html?KW=unicode+table#9631

Here's a second thread could be worth to have an eye on it:

Here's a third thread could be worth to have an eye on it:

Hello,

I finally found the solution from one of your link! - http://www.quickpdf.org/forum/tables-and-columns_topic2058_post9631.html?KW=unicode+table#9631

When I write Unicode text in the table, I need to call SetHTMLNormalFont(). Because in the API document, table uses html text.

Thank you very much.
