I use shapefile file with DATA Written in Arabic language, I wrote the following lines:
layer.LabelField = "NAME"layer.ShowLabels = Truelayer.LabelFont.Size = 9
To display this DATA, NAME is displayed but charachter not redable ! such as: ÇáÓæíÏÇÁ
How can i use ASPMAP To show correctly DAtA and readable as it is written in Arabic?
Set the Layer.CharSet property to the same character set as your shapefile(.dbf).
thank you for help me
I read in a ASPMAP Help file this information, I used it but I got same result without it
The settings for the Charset property are:0 - standard Windows characters.1 - default character set.2 - the symbol character set.128 - Double-byte character set (DBCS) unique to the Japanese version of Windows.161 - Greek character set.162 - Turkish character set.163 - Vietnamese character set.177 - Hebrew character set.178 - Arabic character set.222 - Thai character set.238 - East Europe character set.
How do I read the DBF file or find out what is the encoding used? when I can find a tool for that?
Thank you for your help
Set the Layer.CharSet property in the documentation (not Font.Charset which is deprecated)
