How to get input and output of Arabic/Persian/Farsi texts?
« on: March 15, 2014, 02:05:17 am »
Hi,

I was wondering on how to get Arabic/Farsi text input vai tk2d's input texts and also what should I do if I want to have Arabic/Farsi text on button labels, a.k.a. text meshes.

Thanks.

tk2d doesn't support right to left, but if you generate the right glyphs and handle the right to left yourself, it should be possible to get to work.

Thanks.

Is there any way to prevent user from entering any text beside standard English, like Farsi/Arabic?

No there isn't but you do have the code to tweak as you wish.

For future reference and anyone finding this via search, here is how I did it. Replace this from tk2dUITextInput.cs:

If I don't want to modify tk2d, should I make this protected, inherit from this class and then override this method with my own?
