I'm running VB6 SP5 on XP SP2. I'd like to have a form that displays a TreeView control with nodes' text appearing in several languages, including Chinese Traditional and Japanese. As a test of my code, I wanted to populate the nodes from code by adding new nodes. However, when I hard-code strings in Chinese, the characters are converted to numbers.
I realize that this is because the Unicode characters aren't being handled properly, but don't understand why. I thought VB was Unicode-compliant...shouldn't the IDE be as well? Can someone shed some light on what I might be doing wrong?
Also, I will need to do the same thing in VBA (Office 2003).
