How do I set a string in a textbox to unicode?

I have a report requirement to embed the fonts when the report is exported to PDF. The report server is  SSRS 2005 SP3 and upgrading to SSRS2008 is not an option. I have validated that all requirements have been met to ensure embedding have been met except one -  "The characters in the string that has the Font property set are Unicode, not ANSI. No font embedding occurs for ANSI characters." I referenced this article for requirements -  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms159713.aspx . My data is in a dataset field that was populated by a stored procedure. When I examine the rdl the it has a type name of System.String (<rd:TypeName>System.String</rd:TypeName>) How can I ensure that any strings in the report are recognized as unicode? The SSRS PDF renderer must be interpreting the strings as ANSI because that's how they are being rendered in the PDF file preventing embedding. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Textbox Editable GridView in ASP.NET

This article describes how I made a fully editable gridview in C# using ASP.NET 2. The idea is that the GridView looks and works like an Excel spreadsheet. You see all the cells in the table, and you can edit any of the cells you like, and they are automatically updated (i.e. saved to the database). This is very often how people expect data tables to work in web pages, and I've often seen people clicking in vain on un-editable gridview cells, somehow expecting to edit them, and not understanding that they need to click an Edit button at the end of the row.

Highlighting Rows with TextBox OnFocus

In another article I explained that how you can make the rows of the GridView control clickable and highlight them when they are clicked. In this article I will explain that how you can highlight the GridView rows when you focus on the TextBox which is contained inside the GridView control.

Custom Editing Behavior for DataGridView TextBox Columns

For various reasons I'm using a DataGridView instead of a ListView, and while configuring the DataGridView to look like a ListView wasn't much of a problem, there's one thing that got on my nerves, which is the behavior of textbox cells in edit mode: It is much too easy to leave the edit mode accidentally, simply by pressing the cursor keys at the wrong time. For example when the text caret is positioned behind the last character of the textbox cell content, and you press the right arrow key

Composite control: How to bubble a textbox's TextChanged event?


I've created a composite control that contains several controls, including a textbox. I'm trying to expose the TextChanged event of the textbox as an event on the composite control. I understand that events can be bubbled up the control hierarchy and handled at a higher level, which I've attempted to do, but I can't get the bubbled event to fire. When I drop the control on an aspx I can see the TextChanged event, I can subscribe to the event, but nothing ever happens. Any suggestions? Here is what I think is the relevant code:

// My event
private static readonly object EventTextChanged = new object();

//Handle the bubbled event
EventHandler textChangedHandler = (EventHandler)Events[EventTextChanged];

protected override bool OnBubbleEvent(object source, EventArgs e) 
    bool handled = false;

Worldly Windows: Extend The Global Reach Of Your Applications With Unicode 5.0


When using global applications, people want to communicate with others on their terms, in their own languages. Unicode 5.0 brings that ideal closer to reality.

MSLU: Develop Unicode Applications for Windows 9x Platforms with the Microsoft Layer for Unicode


The Microsoft Layer for Unicode (MSLU) provides Unicode support on Windows platforms that don't provide their own support, including Windows 98, Windows 95, and Windows Me. With MSLU you can write Unicode applications easily for these platforms. MSLU is simple to install, small (even though it wraps more than 400 APIs), and easy on system resources. This article explains the design criteria behind MSLU and how to put the layer to work for you.
