See more: Delphi Unicode
Hi, I have a TStringGrid; When am writing in the grid, it is showing ????? ????? instead of showing و ویکیپیڈیا .

The string which I am setting in TStringGrid is in Unicode, as if I can show it via messagebox;

Following code setting unicode string:
with do begin
          if Cells[1,1] <> '' then RowCount := RowCount + 1;
          i := 0;
          inc(i); Cells[i,RowCount-1] :=strDataType;
          inc(i); Cells[i,RowCount-1] :=strDocument;

The string strDataType is fine, If I put a messagebox there it is showing correct one , but in TStringGrid it is ????????

Can any one help?

It won't work with Unicode, unfortunately. You need v.12 or later. Or switch to Free Pascal...

You need to use Unicode-enabled version of VCL, which came with Delphi v.12. If you have older version of Delphi, this is a problem.

You can also switch to Free Pascal. It has a Delphi compatibility mode and Unicode-enabled VCL:[^],[^].

Please see my past answer:
'اردو ویکیپیڈیا' showing '? ?' in delphi editor?[^].

Are you accepting the answer formally (green button) or not? I gave you some options.
Perhaps you can also use LMD ElPack as Eugene Mayeski advised, but I never tried; I think this is a commercial library, so you should be better off with newer Delphi or with Free Pascal.
