Under default installation, coderush for vs2010rc can't paint non-english characters correctly. Like painting for 'XML Doc Comments', 'Regions' , etc.
In these case, if the content are all english, there's no problem. But whenever there's some non-english characters, will be displayed as unrecognizable character, such as blank rectangle.
To change font used for painting 'XML Doc Comments' in options can resolve these problem. However, no way to change font used for painting 'Regions'.
By the way, painting 'XML Doc Comments' can't paint the inner tags such as '<see cref="" />', they will be displayed as blank.
After all, I'm glad to see and test IDE Tools 10.1 for vs2010.
Thank you for the report, and for providing the screenshot.
I see the problem in your picture, but, unfortunately, I'm unable to reproduce it locally. I've tried to use German characters, but they are painted fine on my side. The attached screenshot illustrates this.
Can you please provide us with a small sample, where the problem is reproduced on your side, so that we can try it here?
BTW, Can you please check whether the problem went away after disabling the "Region Painting" feature. It is possible that this is how the IDE paints these characters. Please do the following:
1) From the DevExpress menu, select "Options...".
2) In the tree view on the left, navigate to this folder:
3) Select the "Regions" options page.
4) Deactivate the "Enabled" option, and check if this makes a difference.
We're looking forward to hearing from you.
I'll use three screen shoots to describe what happend.
Note: I'm using Simplified Chinese to test. I'm not sure what charset family has same problems.
Following are testing code:
public class SmallExample
#region Here's first region : all english characters
//Codes goes here
/// Test Painting - All English
public void TestMethod()
/// Test XML Doc Comment Painting - Follow Chinese Simplified: 中文说明
public void TestmethodB()
#region Second Region - Following Chinese: 第二个代码块
Attachment in this section shows how vs2010rc displayed, which was correct.
Right now IdeTools not load yet.
Screen shoots in this section shows how IdeTools painting.
Under default installation, fonts used to painting 'XML Doc Comment' are 'Arial', 'Times New Roman'. All of them didn't contains any chinese charset.
And all chinese charset were painted as unrecognizable.
Here comes the last one.
In this section I changed font that used to painting comment. I changed from 'Arial' to '微软雅黑(Microsoft Yahei)', which contains both english(single byte charset) and chinese characters(two byte word).
As you see, now comment displayed correctly. I guess the problem is due to painting method not perfectly. These were all OK in vs2008.
But font that used to paintint regions can't be changed.
BTW, in 'Painting\XML Doc Comments' options page, changes of font can't be saved correctly -- only selected tag could be saved, while others not.
Hope helpful for you, thanks.
