Typing Alt + 0233 in any edit field will input the character é.

As we all know, there are many such codes.

If one does this in the Report grid text filter nothing shows up.

Any idea how to fix this?

All our projects are compiled in UNICODE and all other applications (at least on my machine and all machines that I’ve used in the past) are producing the é character when typing Alt 0233 in an edit control. This includes the edit control in which I am writing now. Two things I guess, one, the CExtEdit in the version that we are using does not produce the é character when typing Alt0233, and two the CExtPopupMenuWnd::CInPlaceEditWnd does not derive from CExtEdit but CEdit. Which also does not produce the character. So ... yes, could I have the source code update. Maybe just post it here in case someone else needs it? Thanks for your help.

Here is the updated CExtEdit class:

The CExtPopupMenuWnd::CInPlaceEditWnd class does not need any update. The popup menus always automatically closed on Alt key pressing event.

The Alt+0233 key combination pressed in the typed é character in the CExtEdit control of Prof-UIS 2.87 when the Unicode character system is used. It can produce either é or e characters on other builds depending from the Windows locale setting. We implemented the explicit support for such key combinations in the CExtEdit class. You can drop us an e-mail to the support mail box at this web site and we will provide you with the source code update.
