Description James Antill 2004-11-12 05:25:37 UTC
Client is having a problem w/ XmStringCreateLocalized( char *text )
being unable to display UTF-8 encoding string.
----------
Action by: jantill
 This should really be compiled as...

g++ -Wall -W -o main main.cpp -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lXp -lXm -lXpm -lXt
-lXext -lX11

...but it still fails.
 I can't see anything wrong with the code.

Comment 10 Thomas Woerner 2004-12-07 15:03:01 UTC
The problem is that OpenMotif has no UTF-8 support. Please have a look at:

http://www.openmotif.org/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=29&MMN_position=40:3
and
http://www.motifzone.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3097

OpenMotif-2.3 will have UTF-8 support, but there is no development
schedule or release date, yet.

The next OpenMotif versions (2.2.4 and 2.2.5) are bugfix releases and
will have no UTF-8 support. 


For japanese text, please try ja_JP.eucJP. This might work.

Comment 11 Havoc Pennington 2004-12-08 01:32:01 UTC
eucJP doesn't work; the customer's program always leads openmotif to
call XDrawString() rather than XmbDrawString() regardless of locale
encoding.
