How to display AsString to Unicode instead of question ????? marks

How to display AsString to Unicode instead of question ????? marks

(OP)
Hi,

I am using Delphi 7 with TNT labels accessing a SQLite database via TClientDataSet, the sqlite database contains Arabic and I need to display a field 'mylabel' on to a TNT Label. I used FieldAsString('mylabel').AsString which displays the text on the label as ?????? when it is Arabic (works fine with english text). Anybody know how to deal with this issue?

Thanks,

TopCat

I'm not sure AsWideString is in D7, I have a lot of work ahead of me! Thanks for replying

Better go with a Delphi version that is unicode enabled (D2009+)
