Chinese Characters

Post by spbrady » Mon May 03, 2010 1:02 pm

Hello All,

I have never done this and am trying to understand how to use Chinese characters. I am unclear about the process.

Basically we have a GLK24064-25 on an existing product. We would like to support Chinese font/characters and I do not know how to handle this.

1. Where do I get Chinese character/font set.
2. How do I pull it all together.
3. I am familiar with MogdSharp but a Chinese font set is not present.

Very broad question I believe but if anyone can help or point me in the right direction that would be great.

Thanks for the help.

Hi spbrady,

Though some understanding of the language will probably be required to implement the entire solution, I believe I can get you started.

First, MOGD# will allow you to generate a font based on any font installed in your computer. If you can find and install a Chinese font you'll be set. If you can't find a font you can always modify an exiting MOGD# font that you have generated to draw your own characters. I'd recommend the first option.

Next, within the modify option of MOGD# you'll be able to see the decimal value for each character of your font. For example, 65 is usually associated with an 'A'. This table will show you what value must be sent to make each character display on the screen.

Finally, I imagine some translation will have to be done from your host and the characters written to the screen using their decimal value.
