UTF-8 and ANSI conversion

To convert an ANSI string to UTF-8, use StringToUTF8.
To convert a UFT-8 string to ANSI, use:
PHP

Conversion in PHP

The conversion in PHP uses the following extensions:
  • the php_iconv.dll extension
  • the php_mbstring.dll extension
If none of these PHP extensions are used, only Latin characters will be converted (e.g., Chinese or Russian characters will not be converted).
The php_iconv.dll and php_mbstring.dll extensions are currently proposed on PHP servers. To find out if your hosting provider offers these extensions, simply enter the following information in a search engine: phpinfo <Hosting provider>.
To install these extensions on your own PHP server, simply uncomment the desired extension in the PHP.INI file.

PARA RESOLVER PROBLEMAS DE ACENTUAÇÃO
Prezados,

Caso de problema com acentuação, use:

retorno is string = UFT8toString(textocomacento)

USE O COMANDO UTF8ToString OU AnsiToUnicode


ProcedureWS_Android_IOS_HTTPGetResult()

// Variable
bufResHTTP is Buffer
sHTTPResult isstring

// Retrieves the result of the query
bufResHTTP=HTTPGetResult(httpResult)

// Result in UTF8 em iOS Apple
IFIniOSMode() =TrueORIniOSSimulatorMode() =TrueORIniOSEmulatorMode() =True
IFStringCount(bufResHTTP, “ISO-8859-1”,IgnoreCase) =0THEN
sHTTPResult=UTF8ToString(bufResHTTP)
ELSE
sHTTPResult=AnsiToUnicode(bufResHTTP)
END
ELSE IFInAndroidMode() =TrueORInAndroidSimulatorMode() =TrueORInAndroidEmulatorMode() =True
// Result in Android
