Thx for your responses. My understanding from Michael is that the 64-bit version of VPE does not support Unicode. Sadly we’re moving headlong towards DF2023 64-bit and Unicode and we have just finished rewriting VPE entirely out of our applications. That was not pretty as VPE made many tasks easier. The answer to this question was not elegant however we did keep it “local”, ie using Dataflex standard controls.
