We have to support chinese characters in our control.
We use the legacy version of the edit control.
How is it possible to enter chinese characters ?
We have set the TextEncoding to UTF8 and changed the ImeMode, but it''''s impossible to type and paste chinese characters.

Hi Valery,

Our apologies for the inconvenience caused. I have tested for this issue using Edit Legacy and was able to see the problem. However I have also tested for this issue using the new EditControl (v4.2.0.37) and was not able to see the problem.

Please note that the development of Edit Legacy has been frozen and we intend to phase it out in the near future. Currently we will continue to support Essential Edit Legacy for some more time, but support will be provided through workarounds wherever possible and no fixes or new features will be implemented. Hence we strongly recommend you to upgrade to the new EditControl. The main advantages would be that the new Edit has a better architecture and extensibility - in terms of loading and handling large files, syntax highlighting using XML configuration files, automatic outlining, Wordwrap etc. In short we have addressed all the shortcomings of the Edit Legacy in the new EditControl.

Also, please note that Essential Edit and Essential Edit Legacy are two entirely different products. Hence products developed in earlier versions of Essential Edit (called Essential Edit Legacy now), will not be automatically compatible with Essential Edit. However, you could continue using Essential Edit Legacy libraries for the same. Also, we recommend you to use Essential Edit for any new applications that you may wish to develop.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for your patience.
