Test text encoding configuration

Follow this procedure to test language settings in a Genero Studio client/server environment.

You can create a new project and compile it to test a new text encoding configuration or perform a simple test with the provided HelloWorld sample project as described below.

  1. Select Tutorials & Samples in the Genero Studio Welcome Page and open the HelloWorld sample.
  2. Double-click the HelloForm.4fd file to open it and scroll through the form properties until you locate the text property.
  3. Use a translation tool such as Google Translate to create a phrase in the test language and replace the existing form text with the translated phrase.
  4. Save the changes to the form, re-build and execute the HelloWorld application.
    The language settings are correct if characters from the extended character set display properly. Question marks displayed in place of extended characters indicate a problem with the configuration.
