Language support for Hindi, Thai and Korean. I can't display texts in these languages.

JonAlzaJonAlza ESMember ✭✭

Hello

I am having problems to display texts in these languages. For instance, if I set the Text property like this, when I run the app the labels don't display the text:

this.hindiLabel.Text = languages[0]; // the value is "हिंदी"
this.thaiLabel.Text = languages[1]; // the value is "ไทย"
this.koreanLabel.Text = languages[2]; // the value is "한국어"

I checked it, Text properties are properly set with these strings.

    Hello again, I have been busy doing another things but I am developing with Xamarin again. I have installed another Android emulator, in this case 5.0 Lollipop - API 21, and I can these 3 languages in Settings>Language & input>Language. So the emulator was the reason of this problem. Thank you all for trying to help me.

    @JonAlza - What platform(s) have you tested on? Does it work on any platform?

    @JonAlza
    Does the device itself support those languages? Can you type in those languages in the device's Notepad app?

    @JonAlza - What FontFamily are you using, what version of Android, and as @ClintStLaurent asked, can you use those fonts in other apps on that device?

    I am using Visual Studio emulator for Android (Kitkat 4.4) . It seem that is supported but it has the same problem?

    Maybe it is emulator's problem.

    @JonAlza - I am confused. "It seem that is supported but it has the same problem" - are you saying that you can see text in those languages in other apps, or saying that you cannot?

    In your code, what FontFamily are you using?

    it looks like those 3 languages are not showing up in the list. you can see that there are 3 empty rows.

    Font May not have been installed on the emulator? May be ?
