Arabic glyphs for spacing forms not properly displayed with LCDUI in Java ME
Some Arabic glyphs, are not properly displayed with LCDUI in Nokia's SDKs for Java, while the same glyphs are properly displayed in Oracle's Wireless Toolkit emulator. Text rendering completely ignores these Arabic diacritics on Nokia devices.
The following Unicode glyphs in isolated form cannot be displayed as a String appended to an LCDUI Form:
|Affected glyphs||Isolated Unicode Form|
How to reproduce
Assuming that mainform is an LCDUI Form object, one could append Arabic characters as a String by using their unicode representation as follows:
The above code does not display the proper Arabic glyph on the following emulators:
- Nokia SDK 1.0 for Java
- Nokia SDK 1.1 beta for Java
- Nokia Belle SDK v0.6
Oracle's Wireless Toolkit version 3.0, displays the glyphs properly.
No solution is currently available for this issue.
