Unicode Controls For Vb6 Download High Quality
If you are a Visual Basic 6 Developer you probably already know that internal VB6 controls and classes are not Unicode. This is a big problem when you need to get Unicode data from people who use your programs (for example Chinese, Japanese, Romanian, Arabic, Greek, etc...), when you want to put Unicode strings into your applications or when you want to open a file with an Unicode name and path.Unicode Controls for VB6 is a complete set of UNICODE classes and controls that will turn your VB6 application into an UNICODE machine with very few changes in your code!With Visual Basic 6 you cannot: Use Unicode strings into Controls (Button, List, Combo, Menu, ect...) Receive Unicode data from Controls (Text, Combo, Picture, List, ect...) Use Unicode Tooltips in your application Use a new modern Interface Access/View files with Unicode name and path Copy/Paste Unicode strings to the system clipboard Show Unicode MessageBox Manage Unicode/Ansi links

First of all there is an article from Chilkat (another component vendor) about how to use the Font's charset (assuming it is a unicode font) to set different font types (you have to manually change the .frm since charset isn't exposed in the gui). Then all you have to do is convert from AnsiToUTF8 and back to support different languages (that is what Chilkat's control does).
Second, there are the Vesa Piittinen's free (Creative Commons, source included) VB6 controls for download here. They include Textbox, Label, Menu, List, Dialog, CommandButton, Caption (form's caption)). I haven't played with them much, but basically he is doing all the onPaint and the nice thing is that is all done in VB and you can look at the source.
One whacky option is to use API calls with the native VB6 controls - some pointers in Michael Kaplan's excellent book on Internationalization with VB6 and some sample code on his website too. But it would be lots of work. Do buy the book anyway as it's a gold mine of information on international issues in VB6. For instance the sample chapter explains your problems with Hebrew. Look for it secondhand as it's out of print.
vkUserControls is an ActiveX wich contains differents user controls for your applications. vkUserControls contains Unicode XP-style controls to give a sweet user interface to your VB6 applications.
I have played with Unicode few years back and haven't found a solution to this problem except one from Woodbury but his control sells for 500$ + I don't know how he did but he did.the main problem is VB6 window is created using the ANSI function CreateWindow not CreateWindowW so when we type a Unicode text, windows automatically converts the Unicode text to ANSI and output becomes '???'any workaround ?i really need it :)btw, i tried downloading lastest version of your controls and it gives me a 404.Thanks Everyone.
A small test shows that the problem is GetMessageA(). This ANSIversion of GetMessage() function is automatically included by vb6application and is called in a message loop. So, whenever there is aUNICODE character typed from keyboard, it converts to the infamous '?'string to notify that this character cannot be shown. If you couldsomehow reverse engineer your complied app to call GetMessageW()(probably by modifying imports?), you should have no problem typingany unicode charaters.
So had luck with textboxes yet? For label controls, I just usedDrawTextW API on pictureboxes. What did u do for that?Fortunately, my program yet doesn't need listboxes and comboboxes.Unless you get ANSI apis to Wide versions, Timo's listboxes andcomboboxes controls may have the same problem, though I have nottested this yet. Good Luck with your work.-Sanje2v
The font used in this example is "Arial Unicode MS". This is not provided as part of our download. If you do not have this, but have an alternative font to use, the code can easily be edited to change the font.
Provides all the important UI controls that are missing in VB6. Surprisingly flexible menus, toolbars, status bar, outlook, coolbar, treeview, option list, tab, property lists and toolboxes, and more.
The SocketTools ActiveX controls use the BSTR string type, which is a special UTF-16 encoded string typically used with COM and ActiveX. Property values use BSTRs and all methods accept VARIANTARG parameters (which can represent any data type). If the method expects a string value, it will attempt to convert the VARIANTARG parameter to a BSTR, which will then be converted to a UTF-8 encoded string. If text is returned back to the caller, it will be converted to a UTF-16 encoded string and returned as a BSTR value.
Although strings in Visual Basic are internally managed as UTF-16 strings, the default common controls used in Visual Basic 6.0 do not support Unicode. Those controls, such as buttons, text boxes and labels, will automatically convert the Unicode text to ANSI using the current code page. This means that text in the end-user's native language (depending on system settings) will display correctly, although text in other languages using different character sets may not. Also note that the VB6 IDE is not Unicode aware and may display corrupted string values or invalid characters (e.g.: tooltip values when debugging).
For Unicode support in Visual Basic 6.0, it's recommended that you use third-party controls. An alternative that some developers have used is the Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object Library (FM20.DLL) that is part of Microsoft Office. It includes a collection of controls that support Unicode, however they are not redistributable and Microsoft has stated that their use with VB6 is unsupported.
The question that I am most often asked with regard to VB6 localization, is why texts sometimes appear as question marks, as in the following example.This effect happens with all of the built-in VB controls (Labels, Text-Boxes, List-Boxes, etc.) and in VB6 menus.
Using ANSI or Multibyte character encoding does not mean, that controls and menus cannot display other character sets. The VB6 built-in controls and menus can, for example, display Chinese characters, but only using the correct Chinese codepage.
If this is not good enough, then it is a serious problem. You will probably have to avoid using the VB6 built-in controls entirely and use owner drawn menus. Again I would refer you to Michael Kaplan's book for more information. However, from today's standpoint, moving to VB.NET may well be a better option.
