How do I resolve the problem of SilkTest not entering Asian characters with the SetText and TypeKeys functions?

How do I resolve the problem of SilkTest not entering Asian characters with the SetText and TypeKeys functions?

To resolve this problem it is best to simply override the SetText and TypeKeys methods for the controls in question:

[-] winclass TextField:TextField
    [-] void SetText(STRING sToBePasted)
        [ ] Clipboard.SetText({sToBePasted})
        [ ] this.SetFocus()
        [ ] derived::SetText("")
        [ ] derived::TypeKeys("")
    [ ] 
    [-] void TypeKeys(String sToBeTyped)
        [ ] Clipboard.SetText({sToBeTyped})
        [ ] this.SetFocus()
        [ ] derived::TypeKeys("")

The workaround is simple in nature, copying the Asian text to be input into the said control to the clipboard and then using the derived TypeKeys to paste the text into the control. If we did not use the "derived::" keyword, recursion would occur that cannot exit gracefully resulting in the user having to abort the test run.
