I’m trying to handle the URL scheme apple event which launches my barcoder app fine…
Only problem is that it won’t display then the text correctly with Umlauts…
For example this link parameter:
is turned into during link opening:
Which is fine…but Xojo renders it then in a TextField as:
Setting the TextFields manually like:
ctrl.Text = “Mäny Ümläüts”
Works fine though…so is there some UTF8 conversion function missing here?
Text.DefineEncoding(Encodings.UTF8) and DecodeURLComponent don’t work…
thanks in advance
If the text isn’t utf8 then test with IsoLatin1.
It is actually the ASCII representation of UTF8:
%C3BC is the encoding in ASCII for ü
Seems the only way to search/replace for each individual UTF8 representation and replace it as I don’t see any encoding which matches this…
In Swift this is done transparently…
In Xojo encodings are handled transparently, too. Please show us your complete code.
This code works for me
dim s as string = "B%C3%BCechschew%C3%A4g"
dim t as string = DecodeURLComponent(s)
t = DefineEncoding(t, encodings.utf8)
textfield1.text = t
I get umlauts in the text field.
Using this code:
dim p as NSAppleEventDescriptorMBS = theEvent.paramDescriptorForKeyword("----")
Dim params() as String
Dim s() as String
Dim line as String
line = DecodeURLComponent(p.stringValue)
params = line.Split("?")
If params.count = 2 Then
Dim param() as String = params(1).Split("&")
For Each par as String in param
s = par.Split("=")
If Parameters.count > 0 Then
For i as Integer = 0 to Parameters.LastIndex
Dim ctrl as DesktopTextField
ctrl = Window1.GetControl(Parameters(i))
If ctrl <> nil Then
ctrl.Text = Values(i)
I get with using PHP urlencode for GET parameters:
Or without using urlencode in PHP:
ctrl.Text = DefineEncoding(Values(i), encodings.utf8)
Ah that works…but only without doing urlencode in PHP and then without DecodeURLComponent
What are you trying to do? I never had to use DecodeURLComponent when dealing with NSAppleEventDescriptorMBS.
