I have an app where I display unicode symbols. I’m using a dictionary which works well.
d.Value(&u00FC) = “&u00FC”
d.Value(&u06DE) = "&u06DE”
I add the value and key in a listbox and this will show the unicode and the symbol
I want to use a sqlite db to contain both the unicode and symbol so I created a db and copied everything. The database works well with the copied data (as text data type) but my problem is being able to add new unicode and symbols.
I have a textfield to enter the unicode (example &u1F5DD)
Setting d.Value is the problem. If I set d.Value(Textfield.text) it won’t convert to a symbol as it would if I entered d.Value(&u1F5DD).
How can I set d.value so it works the same as a dictionary. I believe d.Value must be something other than text to display the symbol properly.
Once the unicode and symbol is created in the dictionary I can copy it to the db and the symbol will show properly.
