Double-byte character set support

This chapter explains the functions and considerations that are unique to developing ZIETrans applications that provide double-byte character set (DBCS) support.

In addition to general functions, ZIETrans provides the following specific functions to support DBCS:
  • Data type checking
  • Field length checking
  • Copy-and-paste prevention
  • Input Method Editor (IME)
  • AutoIME switching
  • Shift Out/Shift In considerations

This chapter explains these specific functions and special considerations when using ZIETrans general functions to support DBCS.
