Example
MyUNICODEString is UNICODE string = "beginning"
// MyUNICODEString contains the set of bytes: 0064 00E9 0062 0075 0074
 
MyStringInUTF8 is Buffer = StringToUTF8(MyUNICODEString)
// MyStringInUTF8 contains the set of bytes: 64 C3 A9 62 75 74
// The character "é" was encoded in C3 A9
Syntax
<Result> = StringToUTF8(<String to convert> [, <Charset of string to convert>])
<Result>: Character string or Buffer
  • Character string or buffer in UTF-8 format,
  • EOT if conversion problems occurred.
<String to convert>: Character string
String to convert to UTF-8.
WINDEV This string can correspond to:
  • an ANSI string in the current character set. The result will be an ANSI string containing the conversion to UTF-8.
  • an ANSI string in a specified character set. The result will be an ANSI string containing the conversion to UTF-8. This conversion takes the initial character set into account.
  • a UNICODE string. The result will be a buffer containing the conversion to UTF-8.
<Charset of string to convert>: Optional integer
Source character set of string to convert. By default, this parameter corresponds to the charsetCurrent constant (specified in ChangeCharset).
