AccentSensitive (Property)
In french: SensibleAccentuation
HFSQLHFSQL Client/ServerAvailable only with these kinds of connection
Warning
From version 27, AccentuationSensitive is kept for backward compatibility. This property is replaced by AccentSensitive.
The AccentSensitive property is used to determine if accented characters are taken into account in the different searches performed on the item or full-text index (with HReadSeek, HReadSeekFirst and HReadSeekLast, for example). You can:
  • Find out whether the accented characters are taken into account in the searches performed on this item (or on this full-text index). The item or the full-text index has been defined in the data model editor or through programming.
  • Define the management of accented characters for an item or for a full-text index (when the item or the full-text index is described through programming).

Remarks

Search performed on an "accent-sensitive" item

When a search is performed on an "accent-sensitive" item, only the words with matching accented characters will be found. Therefore, if the customer name is "Renée", the search performed on:
  • "Renée" will find the record,
  • "Renee" will not find the record.

Configuring the different search options for an item

  • To make searches accent-sensitive or insensitive, use the AccentSensitive property.
  • To make searches case-sensitive or insensitive, use the CaseSensitive property.
  • To make searches punctuation-sensitive or insensitive, use the PunctuationSensitive property.

Limits

The AccentSensitive property must not be used on a Numeric item or on a composite key. Otherwise, an incorrect result may be returned.
Minimum version required
