Unicode Support

Setting the System Language Manually

Some TestComplete subsystems support only one Unicode language at a time. For example, the Object Browser can display English characters and either Japanese or Chinese hieroglyphs, but not both Japanese and Chinese ones. You can set the system language both from TestComplete scripts and manually. This topic describes the second option. To learn how to set the system language from scripts, see Setting the System Language From Scripts.

Some TestComplete subsystems currently support only those character sets that use traditional one-byte encoding (English, German, French, Italian and others) and do not support Unicode. These are:

The Unicode language to be supported by TestComplete's user interface and other non-Unicode programs running on your computer is specified by the Language for non-Unicode programs system option. You can set this option in the Windows Control Panel.

  • To change this option in Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 or later operating systems:

    • Open the Control Panel | Clock, Language, and Region window.

    • Click Region and Language. This will invoke the Region and Language dialog box.

    • Switch to the Administrative tabbed page and click Change system locale in the Language for non-Unicode programs section.

    • In the subsequent dialog, select the desired Unicode language from the Current system locale list.

      Note: Support for the needed language must be installed in the operating system before changing the language. For information on how to install language support, see Windows documentation.
    • Click OK to save the changes.

  • To change this option in Windows XP or Windows Server 2003:

    • Open the Control Panel | Regional and Language Options dialog.

    • Switch to the Advanced tabbed page.

    • In the Language for non-Unicode programs list, select the desired Unicode language.

      Note: Support for the needed language must be installed in the operating system before changing the language. For information on how to install language support, see Windows documentation.
    • Click OK to save the changes.

Note: Alternatively, you can set the system language from scripts.
