Hi moustafa.elkady, I've attempted to duplicate the problem you're seeing. I created an event with a subject an description using Arabic characters. The same Arabic characters (not ????) appeared in VueMinder on my other computers when the calendar synced through MySQL Server.

I'm not sure what is causing the problem you're seeing. Is there a different input field or data type where you're seeing this problem?

i'm using mysql service in xampp in windows 7

and any arabic char save ???? in the mysql only
not on the vueminder

look for example

i have 2 pc
the main shared the events
it will show great in the main
when make any new event with arabic it will appear very well also in the main
but it save in the mysql as ????

that's mean it appearing the the 2nd pc as ????

i though the problem from the encoding of the db i changed it to all encoding and the same problem

the thing that make me say the problem from the soft is when view the looger of share it appear
"created event ?????"
"deletet event ?????"

Thank you for the information. For whatever reason, I'm still unable to duplicate the behavior you're seeing. Arabic characters entered on one my test computers will sync with MySQL Server as Arabic characters and also appear on my other computers as Arabic characters. The log also shows the same Arabic characters. I don't know why you're seeing different behavior.

I'm using mysql service in xampp , I also have this problem,
finally I found the solution to this problem

1.open my.ini
2. add

[client]
default-character-set=utf8

[mysql]
default-character-set=utf8
[mysqld]
character-set-server=utf8
3.save and restart mysql service


4.Drop old mysql DB "vueminder"


5.check new create mysql DB charaset is "utf8_general_ci"


In chineses , it seems to work fine.
