Problem


When pasting a segment of non-English text into a TextField object, the text appears garbled.


Cause


If the text information you are transporting through the clipboard is not the same as the native OS language, the Java VM will probably not display the text correctly.


Action


Since characters are handled in Java as UNICODE, the proper display of these characters is based on the interpretation of each character as directed by the operating system.

To resolve this issue, you will need to install a version of the operating system that reflects the new language. The Java VM depends on the native language selections and locale defaults set within the operating system to correctly interpret textual information.

Specialized fonts may be used for display purposes, but text moved through the system clipboard will not display the correct attributes unless it complies with the language specification that has been designated as the system default.
