Robert,

I took about a week off to do some real work and finally got back into sleuthing your issues today.

I devised two small fixes that seem to take care of both issues that you noted.

Next I need to do all the routine regression testing.

Hi MrBCX:

I'm glad to hear that there is progress. As I have been browsing through old code, mostly from other coders, not mine, I have seen that problem pop up a few times. Sometimes it's difficult moving forward; thinking on your paraphrase of T. P. Thompson (1859): “We are walking upon eggs and … the omelet will not be made without the breaking of some.”

We are always looking forward to BCX updates. Thank you.

I also have a UnicodeViewer, in the latest version you can use to pick a Chinese character, right click and send that character to an edit box, from there cut and paste to whatever you want.
UnicodeViewer is at: https://bcxbasiccoders.com/bcxusers/ian/programs/UnicodeViewer.zip
Hi Ian:
The UnicodeViewer is a very nice piece of work. For many years, for viewing Unicode characters, I have been using Andrew West's BabelMap available at

https://babelstone.co.uk/Software/BabelMap.html

Again, a good job! It would be useful for novice coders to have the compilation and linking instructions at the beginning of the code as you have in your UnicodeViewer.

This is a very useful tip.

Thanks for posting this.

I'll give it a go,   我 会 尝试 的  Pinyin -  Wo hui changshi de

you will need to install the Chinese language pack for Win 10
Settings | Time & Language | Language | Add a language

After installing you should be able to switch languages from the icon in the taskbar.
The icon is a chinese character for English 英 or Chinese 中
in chinese mode type wo and the options will automatically appear in a context menu, pick #1 for 我 = I

Any unicode enabled editor or bcx editbox should be able use it in Pinyin - english type text
I do use notepad to edit my .RC files with Chinese - save as UTF16LE. Mostly I am cut and paste from email as I don't speak Chinese。

Google translate is also a great help!!

I have not tried to use INSTR on the Chinese language and I'll need to do some research on that. :-[
I just used BCX_GET_TEXT$ and saved it to file.

I hope this helps

Hi Ian:

Many thanks for the info. I've been wondering about that for years and now I understand.

You can also search the inet for “Chinese input method” or “Japanese input method”.
