Summary0020144: Snapshot 0.9.31-32163-fpc-2.5.1-20110903 no longer allows entering Hebrew Text.
DescriptionSnapshot 0.9.31-32163-fpc-2.5.1-20110903 no longer allows entering Hebrew Text. When I switch the keyboard language to Hebrew, I get something like "éÓÒÛéÛ" instead of "אבישי". It was fine before. I do not know if it is Lazarus or FPC. I have gone back to older version for now.

Which revision is your older version?

Does this apply to:
- SynEdit (the source code editor)
- Any Edit field (e.g the input in the "Search" dialog)
- both?

In order to enter the desired text:
- Do you require the "AltGr" key?
- Is this a sequences of multiply keystrokes (e.g in some languages for accented chars, you first hit the key for the accent, then the key for the char, and it will result in just one accented char)

If it is a sequence (and applies to SynEdit), can you make sure, that the first key, is not assigned in the editor keymapping (options dialog)?

The older rev. is 0.9.31-32139-fpc-2.5.1-20110901
The problem was universal in all controls that I tried, but I did not try in SynEdit and I did not try in the IDE. TEdit, TMemo, TComboBox, TStringGrid. My guess is that it is FPC but I do not know. I do not want to reinstall the bad snapshot to investigate. It caused a lot of problems and I do not want to do the fixing again.

Please test with r32173 or later.

Also, do Hebrew accelerator keys work with this revision?

I do not have r32173 or later. How can I get it? I do not have SVN and I am forbidden to install it.

Hebrew accelerator keys do not work. When I try to set CTRL+א in the property editor it gives Key "Unknown" and shortcut is empty.

You can get it from SVN or wait for tomorrow snapshot.

Accelerator keys are those underlined characters e.g. in Lazarus main menu and are activated by pressing Alt+<underlined char>. Note that you should test in r32173 or later.

I do not know who fixed this issue but...THANKYOU, THANKYOU, THANKYOU!!!
Hebrew text is back in Lazarus-0.9.31-32174-fpc-2.5.1-20110904-win64.

Hebrew Accelerator keys never worked in Lazarus so I stopped using them. I just tried it so that I could answer your question. They still do not work. In the Menu Editor it show the underlined Char, but on Run-Time it show no underline and does not execute when you push the keys. Hebrew Shortcut Keys do not work also.

Anyway, I am happy :) All of my programs work again :))

It scared me but, This issue is RESOLVED!

If you want to test Accelerator Key, you can copy/paste this text,'&אבישי' to the Caption of a menu item. In the menu editor it looks like it will work. You will see the underline. But in Run-Time there is no underline and it does not work. Windows 7

Are you sure that you are pressing Alt-<accelerator key>, not just accelerator key? Accelerator characters get underlined at run-time when you press Alt.

See attached Hebrew_accelerator.png.

I found the problem. Hebrew Eccelerators work. I had part of the menu in English and part in Hebrew (Multi-Lingual Program). To get to '&File' I have to be in Engish, but then I have to switch to Hebrew (ALT+Shift) to get to '&פתוח'. When I switch languages it closes the menu. Logical, but I did not think about it.
