Project Title with chinese character

For the project properties - title in English characters, it can start in browser and build with Voltbuilder. But when I changed the title to Chinese characters, it cannot start in browser and cannot build with Voltbuilder. I try to use English first to start in browser, then changed the title to Chinese characters and run again. In the browser, I refresh the screen and I can see the Chinese characters in the browser’s tab title. Is it normal? I just want to create the APK that have the Chinese title after install.

You’re correct: title in Project Properties is used as the name on the Home Screen.

What happens when you make an apk with a Chinese language string in that field?

There is no reaction. No matter in browser or voltbuilder, they all not start.

I tested with the existing project with the title of “hk”, it work fine in browser and show “hk” in the tab. Then I close the browser and changed this project title to “香港”, it cannot start from the browser. But if I don’t close the browser while I am using the project title “hk”, then changed the project title to “香港” and run again and go to the browser refresh the screen, the tab is showing “香港” now. No matter which case, voltbuilder cannot start when I am using Chinese characters in the title, but go smoothly when I changed back to “hk”.

Thanks - we’ll try this here.

I’m unable to reproduce the problem here.

What I did:

  1. Take a small project. Set title in Project Properties to 香港.
  2. Run in local browser
  3. Browser tab shows 香港.
  4. Save the project.
  5. close AppStudio and restart it.
  6. Run in local browser again.
  7. Browser tab shows 香港.
  8. Submit project to VoltBuilder as an Android build.
  9. Successful. Download 香港.debug.apk
  10. Copy to Android device and install.
  11. Name during installation is 香港.
  12. Name on home screen is 香港 as well.
  13. App runs normally.

Am I testing the right thing? If not, can you give me a step by step telling me exactly where it goes wrong?

I take a video with the following link. Please take a look

I tried your steps exactly.

In your step 7, you got No reaction. It worked correctly for me.
In step 14, you see ‘Chinese’. It worked correctly for me (香港 showed).
In step 18, the apk was created.

Could you send me your project with 香港 in the title? Perhaps it encodes differently on my system.

Please found the project from the following link.

The project you sent has “Chinese” in the title. Can you send the version with 香港 in the title?

It is the updated project with title of 香港.

The Chinese version also worked perfectly for me, on both MacOS and Windows 10.

Do you have another computer you can try?

Just installed on my notebook and it work fine with chinese characters. I think there is some problem on my Windows 10 PC. I will re-install the 8.4.2 version again later.

After uninstall and re-install the latest version again, the problem still happened on my Windows 10 PC. Anyway I can use the notebook to build this project with chinese characters.
