Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You create a Microsoft Visual C++ Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) application that uses the CRichEditView class in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008.

  • You open the project property dialog box, and then you select the Use Multi-Byte Character Set option in the Character Set list.

  • You build the application, and then you run it.

  • You type multibyte characters in a rich edit control.

  • You open the Replace dialog box, and then you type characters in the Find what and Replace with text boxes.

    Notes

    • You can press Ctrl+H to open the Replace dialog box.

    • The rich edit control contains the characters that you typed in the Find what text box.

  • You click Replace to replace the characters in the rich edit control with the characters that you typed in the Replace with text box.

In this scenario, the multibyte characters that are in the rich edit control are not replaced by the characters that you typed in the Replace with text box.

Cause

This issue occurs because of a problem in the string-comparison algorithm.
