PDF generation with Herew/Arabic characters

2003-02-19 05:24

Hi,

 

when printing a text consisting of Hebrew/Arabic characters from right to left I get the following behaviour:

In the preview dialog the character order is right to left -> fine.

Printing is the same result as preview -> fine.

When generating a pdf file the character order is reversed: left to right -> :-( (e.g. table = elbat)

Does somebody know, what to do about this?

 

Thanks,

 

Peter

Hi,

 

I got a reply from one of the iText authors:

 

"Jasper uses ColumnText to display text. By default no ordering is made. You'll have to call ColumnText.setRunDirection(PdfWriter.RUN_DIRECTION_RTL) to have reordering. It's probable that a new Jasper attribute is needed or that jasper scans the text and then decide what to do baseed on the characters, noting that hebrew will also need reordering."

 

I looked it up and found out that iText 0.92 does not support the run direction RTL. Current version 0.96 does. Does this mean that JR currently does not support the generation of Arabic/Hebrew pdf files?

 

Greetings,

 

Peter

Hi,

 

After all you said, it seems it doesn't.

If you're interested, you can study this issue

and maybe come up with a suggestion or even

a patch.

 

Thank you,

Teodor

Hi,

 

JasperReports now supports right-to-left writing.

Check the "unicode" sample that comes with version 0.6.2.

 

Thank you,

Teodor
