    Hi,
    we’re owning the Advansys Formativ Admin Version 1.5.3.0.
    If I change the Message-Texts of existing applets to the needs of the german language the german special characters will not be displayed. We only see question marks at the special character positions.
    Who can help, perhaps with a workaround ?!
    Thanks,
    Mirko

    Could you please post an example of the types of characters you are trying to display. It would be ideal if you could include an actual applet code snippet that includes some of the characters that cause problems.

    Thank you,

    Can you work around this issue by using the Chr() function? For example:

    MsgBox "This is an extended character: " & Chr(224)

    Here is a line of code which we want to use:

    call msgbox(“Bitte Text einfügen, um fortzufahren.”, 64, CAPTION)

    After posting the message I find out the work around with the & chr(xyz) & on my own, but this does obviously not work in definitions like:

    const CAPTION = “BauBeCon IT L” & chr(246) & “sungen”

    Therefore I am further interested in a final sollution of the problem.

    Thank you in advance,

    Instead of declaring a constant, you can use a standard variable declaration:

    CAPTION = “BauBeCon IT L” & chr(246) & “sungen”

    Please let us know if this suggestion does not help.

    Hi,

    yes it wokrs if I did not use the Const declaration, but I am still interested in an other solution cause while translating the english messages into german, I wonder how often our german special characters will be used. And allways typing the & chr() & is very anoying – and I can not remember these 9 ascii codes 🙁

    We have made available Field Test Files for Formativ Admin and Developer version 1.5.4.0. These versions allow you to edit source code that may include extended characters. We have tested these files with the characters you quoted earlier in this thread.

    The files are available from the following links:

    Formativ Developer 1.5.4.0 Field Test File

    Formativ Admin 1.5.4.0 Field Test File

    Exit GroupWise, then download the appropriate file. Manually copy the downloaded file over the top of the existing version of the same name, which will be found in the c:program filesadvansysformativ directory.

    We look forward to hearing the results of your testing.
