I use LV DSC RT 8.2.1
Is there anyone here that can help me in the problems I am having while writing a VI with Hebrew ?

You can write in Hebrew, but because there is no official support for right-to-left langauges, there are some tricks you need to perform.
What your specific problem?

Are you from Israel ?
I use LV DSC RT 8.2.1,
I have added the following lines to the LabVIEW.ini file (at C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 8.2)
I have several problems...
For example, I need to use sometimes number and hebrew letters and signs in a String,
and they all mix together. for example - try to write what I will write in the next message (using Shift + Ctrl)
this is not possible...
an you tell me some tricks?
do you know any documentation of those tricks ?

I want the '1' to be on the right, and the dot ('.') to be on the left of the number....

As far as I know, you can't do that. Non-Hebrew characters behave in a somewhat predictable way - when you place them at the end or a beginning of a string they appear on the other side of it, so you can just type them on the other end. Numbers seem to be unique in that they do what they want at the end or beginning of a string, so you can't use the same trick. You could place another letter before the number, but that looks bad and you can't color it white, because changing the properties of a single character messes up the entire string.
The only thing you can do, really, is create a separate control for the numbers and align the two controls, or use a picture control to display the text.
Another alternative is to use an ActiveX control (like Microsoft's rich text control), but I never used it, so I can't give any feedback on it.
And yes, I am from Israel.

Thank you for your reply,
I am already using the option of creating a separate controls...
I will check the activeX and let you know,
Nice to know that there are other people in this forum from Israel,

Try using this... http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/epd/p/id/3403 This VI shows how to use case, event, and sequence structures to reverse the order of characters entered in a string control. You can use this functionality with languages that write text from right to left, such as Arabic, Hebrew, or Urdu. Hope it helps!

I don't know who wrote that VI, but I am far from impressed by it (to put it mildly), for a list of reasons:
Specifically, it doesn't resolve this issue, because it doesn't matter where the number is. It always appears incorrectly. Personally, I would say that the VI should be removed, but that decision's not for me to make.

Thank You for the review of the VI,
I am going to the reserves,
but I will probably be free to come to NI Days at Hilton TA (April 1),
I hope to see you there...
