Build: N6.1 & 08-10 trunk build on Window2000-CN and WinME-Ja Steps to repro: 1. Launch browser. 2. I have global CJK IME on Win2k-CN and Japanese IME on WinME-Ja. 3. Turn on CJK IME (keyboard), try to type some non-ascii characters. e.g. some accent characters - Alt-225 ...etc. Result: You will either can not get any input in Browser or Composer, or get one without accent. IE5.5 will get the correct characters though.
can you be explicit which key sequence you typed? and what you expect to be generated?
set to m9.5
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.9.5
ylong - please provide us with more details. Thanks.
Here is one example about it: On netscape home page, if I press "Alt-225" in URL location bar or search text field, I expect will get a non-acii character "ив" (a with accent). Actually result by repeat the steps above: 1. Win2000 traditional Chinese / default MS Traditonal Chinese IME(keyboard): 08-27 trunk build - got letter "a" (without accent) IE - got non-ascii character "ив" (with accent) 2. Win2000 simplified Chinese / default MS Simplified Chinese IME(keyboard): 08-27 trunk build - no any letter appears IE - got non-ascii character "ив" (with accent)
Summary: Can not get the correctly single byte non-ascii characters on CJK IME(keyboard) → Can not get the correctly single byte non-ascii characters on CJK IME(keyboard layout)
Same problem also on WinXP-Ja, and also as I said before on WinME-Ja.
Removing myself and adding Todd.
Change severity to major.
Severity: normal → major
nsbranch- since Frank moved it to 0.9.5
Keywords: nsbranch → nsbranch-
This problem is happens on both: 1. CJK MS IME on CJK system. 2. CJK input with CJK keyboard layout - can be added by control panel. We have another bug 98376 which is talking about one very specific case - Ja input with US keyboard. I believe the fix of this bug will fix bug 98376, and better to fix this one first. however bug 98376 still has "nsbranch" keyword, and this is "nsbranch-" and moved to 0.9.5. I think this one should has high priority than bug 98376.
setting the priority
Priority: -- → P1
Platform SDK/winuser.h has new msg. #if(_WIN32_WINNT >= 0x0501) #define WM_UNICHAR 0x0109 #define WM_KEYLAST 0x0109 #define UNICODE_NOCHAR 0xFFFF #else #define WM_KEYLAST 0x0108 #endif /* _WIN32_WINNT >= 0x0501 */
Are these messages used only by NT. This is being reported on both Window2000-CN and WinME-Ja. I thought ME is 9x based not NT based.
*** Bug 103231 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
what will happen in Notepad or Word?
NotePad: Keyboard <Alt>+169 <Alt>+0169 -------------- --------------------- ----------------------- Ja-IME 'Ž©' = half with 'u' 'Ž©' = half with 'u' En 'Ž©' = half with 'u' 'Ž©' = copy right symbol
I set breakpoints on WM_UNICHAR, WM_DEADCHAR, WM_IME_CHAR, WM_CHAR Only WM_CHAR is called with <Alt>+0169 and <Alt>+169. I guess WM_UNICHAR is only supported in WinXP. The msg is not gets called in W2K-ja. Anybody have suggestions? I am at a point where we need to compile mozilla as an Unicode app in order to fix this issue. Note: how to create unicode app 1. Add _UNICODE and UNICODE preprocesser definition under C/C++/General 2. Delete _MBCS preprocesser definition under C/C++/General 3. Choose the __stdcall or __fastcall calling convention under C/C++/Code Generation 4. Set Entry Point Symbol to wWinMainCRTStartup under Link (MFC app only)

bobj: MS have a lib called "Microsoft Layer for Unicode on Windows 95/98/Me Systems " http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/win32/unilayer_4wj7.asp Basically, it's a library you can link to your Unicode App.
I think this should be P4 bug instead of P1. How many user will use this feature ? I think most of real user will either switch to a different keyboard layout to type the text or copy and paste from ucharmap.
Priority: P1 → P4
I think this one should be P4 future. Any documentation mention such feature in Window IME?
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.6 → Future

Update info: Retested on branch build 2002-07-03-08-1.0 1. on NT based OS: some high ascii characters can not be entered correctly. 2. on Win9x: when entering at 2nd time, sometimes a Chinese character will be shown up. please refer to the attachment.
Which keys did you enter? with or without the leading zeros? More info on the leading zero from W2K help system for "key sequences - inputting characters not on the keyboard": ... Windows 2000 generates the character you specified and passes it to the foreground program. Notes - If the first digit you type is 0, the value is recognized as a code point, or character value, in the current input locale. For example, when your current input locale is US-English (Code page 1252: Windows Latin-1), pressing the ALT key and then typing 0163 on the numeric keypad produces £, the pound sign (U+00A3). When your current input locale is Russia (Code page 1251: Windows Cyrillic), the same key sequence produces the Cyrillic capital letter JE (U+0408). - If the first digit you type is any number from 1 through 9, the value is recognized as a code point in the system's OEM code page. The result differs depending on the Windows system locale specified in Regional Options in Control Panel. For example, if your system locale is English (US), the code page is 437 (MS-DOS Latin US), so pressing the ALT key and then typing 163 on the numeric keypad produces ú (U+00FA, Latin small letter U with acute). If your system locale is Greek (OEM code page 737 MS-DOS Greek), the same sequence produces the Greek small letter MU (U+03BC).
>> Which keys did you enter? with or without the leading zeros? The keys entered start from 230, and without the leading zeros.
I just checked in the code for making mozilla Unicode app. Here is what I have/did: 1) Windows XP- CS with English-US system locale w/ En keyboard locale Mozilla : - enter "Alt-163" in text field, got letter "u" (with acute) - enter "Alt-0163" in text field, got letter "pound sign" IE : - enter "Alt-163" in text field, got letter "u" (with acute) - enter "Alt-0163" in text field, got letter "pound sign" 2) Windows XP- CS with English-US system locale w/ Ja keyboard locale Mozilla : - enter "Alt-163" in text field, got letter "u" (with acute) - enter "Alt-0163" in text field, got "1/2 width right corner bracket" IE : - enter "Alt-163" in text field, got symbol "heart" - enter "Alt-0163" in text field, got symbol "heart" It looks like mozilla is respecting the current keyboard input locale; but IE is not. Are we better than IE? (sure!) ylong: can you try it in Win9x system?
ylong: unicode version patch is rolled back last night. :( I have a patch to fix the problem. Moz Unicode should be ready tomorrow Please postpone this test until tomorrow. Thanks
Here are some results on 09-24 trunk build: 1. Win98-EN: Mozilla/Netscape & IE (Same result): English IME: Alt-163: u with umlaut. Alt-0163: pound sign, "£". Japanese IME: Alt-163: a Kanji character Alt-0163: "1/2 width right corner bracket", "｣". 2. WinME-JA: Mozilla/Netscape & IE (Same result): English IME: Alt-163 & Alt-0163: pound sign, "£". Japanese IME: Alt-163 & Alt-0163: "1/2 width right corner bracket", "｣". So, seems on Win9x system, the results are same between IE and mozilla in this case.
I believe this bug is fixed with Unicode build. I am going to mark this as fix and making it as depends on 104934 Please verify once 104934 gets fixed. (I will be today or tomorrow)

Change QA contact to Carine. Carine, could you please verify this? Since Roy just checked in bug 104934 today, so it will affect after tomorrow's trunk build. Please test on all windows platforms.
