using German Language with $host.response // xfa.host.response

I would be grateful for an answer.

My mistake in scripting or European bug? In the end, the problem seems to be known even thoug I do not find an answer.

At least something is shown

Formular1.Seite1.Test::click - (FormCalc, client)

$form.Formular1.Seite1.textfield.rawValue = "Ä

ÖÜäöü"

//textfield shows Umlaut

var

start = "Ärgerlich Bug or mistake?"

var

answerquestion=$host.response("Enter Text", "Text Enter", start)

answerquestion

//ok

$host.messageBox(answerquestion))

//returns "rgerlich Bug or mistake?"!

if

(textfield=="rgerlich Bug or mistake?") then

     $host.messageBox("regocnized")

else

     $host.messageBox("rgerlich Bug or mistake? is not regocnized")

endif

if

(textfield=="Ärgerlich Bug or mistake?")

then

     $host.messageBox("regocnized")

else

     $host.messageBox("rgerlich Bug or mistake? ist no regocnized")

endif

$host.messageBox("If You exchange the following lines Programm wants to install Easy Chinese Language module.

If you try changing

and miss to cancel you have to use deinstallation of chinese language ")

//returns " is not recognized neither with nor without Umlaut

textfield

= answerquestion

$host.setFocus("textfield")

Tnx

Dear Paul,

thanks for confirmation.

support incident is opend on Sept. 14th 2009.

There is no answer yet.

Do you have any idea how to identify the response and change it to German Umlaut.

Hello,

I am having this same issue with German umlaut as well as these types of characters in other languages. Has this been addressed with a newer version? Thank you for your assistance.

Das nenn ich mal ein interessantes Problem.

Was habe die uns da wieder eingebrockt.

I added a second textfield "controlField" to your example and one more line to the script

$form.Formular1.Seite1.textfield.rawValue="ÄÖÜäöü"

//field shows Umlaut

var start = "Ärgerlich Bug or mistake?"

var answerquestion = $host.response("Enter Text", "Text Enter", start)

//ok

$host.messageBox(answerquestion)

controlField = answerquestion

...

The interesting is the behavior of the new field when you enter/exit it.

1. Enter "Hölle" into the response box

2. Umlaut is cut-off in message box

3. and the returned string in the textfield is it even more.

4 but wait, when the field has focus, the string partly reappears.

We've effectively talked about the French educational program exhaustively in our past article, and likewise the benefits of contemplating in the French language stream. Presently, we should discuss the upsides of learning the German.
