Shapefile fields in non-enlish format

hi all

I'm a newbie to SharpMap. I have a shapefile with some fields containing non-english texts, i.e. Arabic language. i can see my shapefile clearly with all those texts without any problem in ArcGIS

but here in sharpmap, when i access those arabic values, i get some unknown characters.

It sounds language or CultureInfo should be introduced somehow in code, but i don't know the way.

can anyone help me, please? i'm really in hurry to deliver a project. I've nearly written all the project and faced this big problem at the end.

Thanks in advance

Oh! what a shame!

I didn't notice encoding property of shapefile.

Sorry a lot

Sorry. I'm again

Anyone knows where Sharpmap.ui.dll is in newer versions?

I had an old version from some years ago, now that i download new release from download section, i don't see this dll.

actually, i wanna use MapImage control

Best regards
