Post by khurshid.arshad » September 25th, 2019, 5:35 am

Dear CSPro Team

I am currently working on CAPI application by using CSPro 7.1.3 in Windows 7. My all questions are in Urdu and it is working fine on desktop and android.

When I try to use Windows 10 it creates problem. On desktop the questions are fine but not on Android.

The issue of placement of variable name between percentage sign %% .

This problem is with CSPro 7.3 as well in windows 10.

For further clarification, please see attached file.

I need your advice in this regards.

Can you post or send us your application (or one that illustrates the problem) so that we can reproduce the problem here?

Unfortunately, this is an issue with how Android renders when rendered text is mixed with right-to-left and left-to-right text. Currently we do not have a solution for this issue.

We have done some research on supporting mixed direction text on Android and it seems like it should be possible. We will fix this issue in the next release - at least for the question text. Handling mixed direction text in an errmsg() or in a value set label is not as simple.

Hi Josh: This seems a great news for researchers/programmers who are doing surveys in Arabic/Urdu speaking countries. Waiting anxiously for this feature.
