Bidi Text in SWT

Postby mshahriar2000 » Mon Oct 13, 2003 3:38 am

Does SWT correctly display BIDI text? I tried to display my native language(Bangla/Bengali) in SWT components. I found surprising result! The result is surprising because it works correctly in my home pc, but when i tried the same at my office, it failed(the OS is same)!

Sorry, I don't have experience with BIDI text. I can just suggest you ensure that you use also same version of Eclipse.

The Eclipse team is currently working on this. Go to, click on the Search page and search for "bidi" to read up on the various issues and discussions.
