µVISION: SCREEN ARTIFACTS WITH TAB CHARACTERS


Information in this article applies to:

  • µVision Version 3.30

QUESTION

I have a problem with the Screen Display of the Editor. TAB characters are not shown correctly on the screen. Instead artifacts from underlaying screens are displayed. What can be done?

ANSWER

The problem is not in µVision, but with the Windows 2000/XP API function TabbedTextOut. It occurs when any RTL language (Arabic for example) is installed. So far, we could not find any solution to this issue.

Possible work-arounds:

  • Uninstall all RTL languages from your computer.
  • Use blanks instead of TAB characters within your text. You may replace the TAB characters against blank characters using the menu function Edit — Advanced — Untabify Selection. Under Edit — Configuration — Editor you may set Insert Spaces for Tabs.
