How to change font of a form title and toolstrip button text in Lao or other Asian language at runtime in winforms using c#.
I have a Lao Resource file where I defined values for label and other strings in Lao language.

frm_licence(A window form)
font(a string variable in Lao resource file where i set it to SaysthaOT font.

Sample code.

this.Text = Lao.frm_licence.ToString();
this.Font = new Font(Lao.font.ToString(), this.Font.Size);

It is nicely applied on label control and other menustrip values but it is not working for form title and toolstrip button text.

it is working for label control.

Label1.Text = Lao.Label1.ToString();
Label1.Font = new Font(Lao.font.ToString(), Label1.Font.Size);

but not working for a form's title and toolstrip buttons text property

What do you mean by "not working for form name text and ..." ?
Does it have a text direction problem? Or unreadable text like "??????????"? Or etc ?

when i am converting the winform name it is not converting the font of text.
It is displaying the text same in resource file in windows 7 but in xp it is displaying in unread characters.

Don't bump your question - it is rude.

the reason behind the bump is that I want all visitors read this question otherwise I have to post it again. :)

Consider: if it didn't get answered last time, it probably is because no one here knows. Posting exactly the same question again is also considered rude.
