Much of our success has been built on developing large line-of-business applications for Fortune 500 companies. However, today many of our customers’ IT budgets are going directly to business departments that are deploying cloud-based solutions rather than building traditional IT infrastructure and management models.

  • Hot Keys and altGr

    MurrayS3
    20 Apr 2015 | 6:55 pm
    The earlier post, RichEdit Hot Keys, lists all built-in RichEdit hot keys. In particular, it lists a popular hot key for typing the Euro (€), ctrl+alt+e, which works for some languages, such as US English. A problem may arise when altGr+e is assigned to some other character, such as é in Spanish keyboards. This is because altGr generates a left ctrl + right alt key down combination, instead of a right alt key down combination. RichEdit avoids a conflict by not treating left ctrl + right alt key combinations as hot keys. So with RichEdit and Word, it's easy to insert both €…

    27 Mar 2015 | 3:34 pm
    Occasionally people ask how foreground (text) and background colors work in RichEdit. This post gives an overview of RichEdit colors in a variety of scenarios including default coloring, formatted coloring, selection coloring (both normal and acetate), math-zone highlighting and special draft and high-contrast modes. It also describes refinements such as switching to XOR coloring when the foreground and background colors are too similar. Interestingly enough except for math-zone highlighting, all these coloring options work with RichEdit plain-text controls as well as with rich-text controls.
  • Math Language Tag

    MurrayS3
    14 Feb 2015 | 2:35 pm
    To guide proofing tools to use the correct dictionaries and autocorrect lists as well as to display preferred glyphs, it’s very handy to associate language tags with text runs. For many years, Windows has provided a language tag property called the LCID (locale identifier) consisting of a 32-bit unsigned integer. The LCID suffices for many purposes. But as time has gone on, more and more languages have been supported on computers and finer distinctions have been needed than provided by the LCID’s primary and secondary languages and sort order. Accordingly the BCP 47 language tag…

    I just visited two very interesting countries, Vietnam and Korea. Being actively involved in writing software (mostly RichEdit) for editing the world’s scripts, I was naturally fascinated to see Vietnamese and Korean text displayed in profusion. The Vietnamese and Korean scripts were designed with a common purpose in mind: enable the languages to be read and written easily by all members of their respective countries. Earlier on, people tried to write Vietnamese and Korean by customizing the Chinese script. But while the Chinese script is well suited to Chinese languages, it’s…
  • Ruby Text Objects

    MurrayS3
    27 Dec 2014 | 6:33 pm
    Chinese characters are used to represent syllables and words in a number of East Asian languages. In each language, the characters are pronounced differently and their meanings may differ as well. To help clarify the pronunciation and/or semantics, “ruby text” can be used. In vertical text layout, ruby text is positioned vertically to the right of the base text that it annotates, while in horizontal text, the ruby text is normally placed above the base text. For example, the word Japanese,日本語, can be annotated as where the “ruby text” にほんご is the hiragana…

In the case of the latter, the learner will need click the browser's Back button to get back to the lesson.Web objects allow you to embed a website directly on a Captivate slide.
