RE: putty can shape now..





From: "ahmad khalifa" <ahmadkhalifa at hotmail dot com>
when u call ExtTextOut with the flag ETO_GLYPH_INDEX, the input string lpString, is not a
Unicode string oran ASCII string, its an INDEX string, that means (from what i understand) that
lpString is a Double-Byte string of Glyph indices relative to the current selected font in the given
display context...

well i tried to do what's in this email ( i didn't do what you said about converting to CP-1256 ) and when i tested Putty i got arabic letters that are not shaped and not orders and the wrong thing was not the same letters i should see, for example instead of having i got so i think that there is something i am missing, another thing that i really need to work on is the indexing thing in letters can someone forward me to a web site that explains the UTF-8 at least so that i know what i am deal with...

well u only get the letters (tah) and (zah), because they are 0xd8 and 0xd9 in CP-1256...
and as i said GetCharacterPlacement expects CP-1256 , and you give it Unicode which is 2 bytes and
usually starts with 0xd8 and 0xd9..... so you have to add the funtion WideCharToMultiByte() before
GetCharacterPlacement()....


just merge the 2 emails i sent u before...

ak...
