With Prima (1.3), I cannot enter Chinese characters in the InputLine widget from the keyboard through the system's default Input Method Editor (I'm running Win XP SP3 Chinese version). However, Chinese characters can be pasted to the InputLine and display properly in it so I'm wondering if there's a workaround to make the InputLine accept Chinese characters or any other double-byte characters from the keyboard input. What kind of design causes a widget to refuse double-byte character input from the keyboard? Is it easy to add its support?
Can anyone give me some ideas? Thanks in advance.
