    Accented characters in Lacewing

    This question relates to the thread I started elswhere.
    See http://community.clickteam.com/threads/81970-Read-Accented-characters-from-INI-file for all the details.

    Brief breakdown of the issue . . .

    In an ini file we have for example "name=Grégoire"

    The application reads the ini file and populates say a field with the "name".
    When the field receives its name it then uses Lacewing to join a group with that name.
    If using an accented (foreign) character it doesn't connect to the group.

    If I change the ini file to say "name=Gregoire" (note: no accented characters)
    Then it works straight away and connects to the group.

    Thanks for any help.

    Lacewing does not have a Unicode version yet, it does not support any Unicode characters.
    Working as fast as I can on Fusion 3

    Thanks for the response.
    So if Lacewing doesn't have a Unicode version does that mean that someone using a foreign keyboard layout as their default, cannot use any of their accented characters in conjunction with Lacewing. i.e connecting to a group etc?
    I just need to be 100% sure that I understand before I speak to the client.

    Thanks again

    I think it's possible to have a different extension encode the string in binary and have Lacewing send it as a binary message instead, and then translate the received binary back into unicode characters again, but I don't own the Unicode exporter so I don't know which extension(s) can do this. It is definitely possible, though. Just know that Lacewing always treats strings as non-unicode, so there is no way for user names or channel names to have unicode characters.

    madmac, the UTF-16 object I just released will let you encode Unicode characters - just send each character as shorts.

    I may chuck out an update so you can handle whole Unicode strings.

    Cheers
