Re: blackberry how can I display the text in Hindi..

There are already a number of similar Threads on the forum, however it seems most of them are not marked as solved so perhaps they have not  actually worked.

 

But search for Hindi and you should find some of them. 

 

I must admit that I have never tried to install a Hindi font, but I have tried to install other Fonts and developed this:

I think this approach will work for you.  You just need to include a Hindi font in your application, and install it at start up time if it is not already installed.  The only restriction is the font must less than 90 K.

 

A similar approach is discussed here:

Have a look for the comment made by Vishal Singh Rawat.

Re: blackberry how can I display the text in Hindi..

I assume you do not have a networking issue.  Can you please confirm that you are getting the bytes back from the Server OK?

 

If you are, then I think the Thread I referenced above does contain the answer to your question.  I would suggest you look specifically at this Post:

http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Java-Development/Display-hindi-characters-in-blackberry-os-5-...

 

if that does not answer your question, then please let us know.  Perhaps you could describe what you are doing and what results you are seeing that are not what you expect.

Re: blackberry how can I display the text in Hindi..

I am confused by this request.  Are you saying that you can do a one for one conversion of the Latin characters to Hindi characters?   That is not possible with most languages that I am aware off, so you have to translate the text, rather than convert the characters.

 

Remember that a Font is just a way of displaying a characters.  So by changing a Font, you change the look of a character on display - that is all. 

 

if there is a one to one conversion possible, then perhaps thee Fonts that were used by the Original Poster on this Thread:

http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Java-Development/Display-hindi-characters-in-blackberry-os-5-...

May help you.  You could ask him. 

 

If however you do need to translate, then a previous post on this Thread directed you to a translation service I think.

 

Hope this helps.
