Unicode In Labview

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I am using Labview 8.6 LINUX I would like to add Greek characters in labels and in strings but no luck.

Is it possible to add Unicode characters or iso-8859-7 and how?

Thank you very much!!!

LabVIEW doesn't support unicode characters, but does support wide characters. I've not been able to get wide characters to display Chinese yet, so I'd like to know if you manage to get Greek characters to display.

There are some third party controls that can be dropped into LabVIEW that can add unicode support; appologies that I don't have a link at the moment to point you to them.

I did a bit of poking about and discovered two articles:

I tried the 'UseUnicode=TRUE' with Chinese characters and that seems to have worked. Labels don't seem to take unicode, but button text and string text seem to accept them.

Captions should probably work too :-)

ok...fixed!

in ubuntu 10.04 works out of the box without editing ini file, [ there is unicode also in labels ].

Another question, can i use smooth fonts - antialiasing ?

Everything works fine in ubuntu [ smooth fonts ]except in labview.

Any suggestions?
