DB/Reporting :: Unicode Characters Showing As '?'

Jul 26, 2011

I have developed an application and need to allow users to enter text in any language and save it to my database. However the text is saved as '?' in my database. I have googled quite a bit and found that people have suggested not to use varchar, text types but use nvarchar and ntext etc in your database. I have gone through and made these changes to my database. However it still saved text as '?', I then found people where saying about adding 'N' infront of the text prior to saving into the database. The problem is that I cannot figure out how to do this in a stored procedure.

Stored Procedure

CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[spUpdateActionTaken] @ID as varChar(4),@action as text,@modifyDate as varchar(50)
UPDATE commentsTbl SET commActionTaken=@action,modifyDate=@modifyDate WHERE [ID]=@ID

Note: Fields commActionTaken set to nText

VB.Net Code

Dim actionTaken as String = Me.textBox.Text
Dim myCmd As New OleDb.OleDbCommand("spUpdateActionTaken")
myCmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure

Batch To Remove File With Unicode Characters?

Feb 11, 2012

I made a batch script using VB.NET which deletes shortcut on my desktop. The problem is that shortcut title contains unicode characters so batch doesn't work. However if I remove that unicode character from the shortcut and batch script it does delete the shortcut. How can I make it delete the shortcut w/o removing that unicode character?

tempstring = "@echo off"
tempstring = tempstring & vbCrLf & "del " & Chr(34) & My.Computer.FileSystem.SpecialDirectories.Desktop & "My shortcut™ 1.lnk" & Chr(34)
tempstring = tempstring & vbCrLf & "del %0"

Extract All Characters In Unicode, UFT8, Iso-8859-1 To 9 Etc To A List Or Array In VB?

Jan 11, 2010

How do I Extract all Characters in Unicode, UFT8,iso-8859-1 to 9 etc to a list or array In VB?I have a SQL Database of which contains values from 51 languages. I need to detect which ISO-8859-? Was used to encode the string value. For example Turkish Characters i.e. "Ö Ş ş ğ ü Ç" Once I have the correct ISO, I need to convert the Chars with-in the string to Unicode using only if the string value contains values that are not UFT7, and convert the string to HEX?The reason I need to detect the ISO etc is because we are sending SMS, of which jump from 160 characters to 70 if a special characters are used, i.e. "Ö Ş ş ğ ü Ç" Is there a simple way to extract the ISO-8859 Character Set to a Array etc, or is there a simple way to check if the character exists with a ISO-8859 data set?

Convert Text To Unicode?

Nov 3, 2009

I am trying to convert text inputed in a text box to unicode. I need to the program to process each letter and return "the letter = the unicode" in the label.

For example, if the user enters "apple" the lable would read: a=65 p=80 p=80 l=76 e=69

I know the AscW command will return the Unicode Integer but I only know how to do the conversion for single letters

The code below only processes the first letter and only returns the code, not "the letter = the code"

Private Sub btnCode_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnCode.Click
Dim strWord As String = Me.txtWord.Text

Convert Unicode In One TB To Shift-JIS In Another TB?

Jun 10, 2010

Trying to develop a text editor, I've got two textboxes, and a button below each one.When the button below textbox1 is pressed, it is supposed to convert the Unicode text (intended to be Japanese) to Shift-JIS.The reason why I am doing this is because the software VOCALOID2 only allows ANSI and Shift-JIS encoding text to be pasted into the lyrics system. Users of the application normally have their keyboard set to change to Japanese already, but it types in Unicode.How can I convert Unicode text to Shift-JIS when SJIS isn't available in the System.Text.Encoding types?

Convert String Containing Upper ASCII Characters To Byte Array?

Oct 9, 2008

How to correctly convert string containing upper ASCII characters to byte array besides looping through each character and filling the array using AscW(chr)?I know I can do something like:

Dim bSourceData As Byte() = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.GetBytes(sourcedata)

But this only works for lower ascii characters (0-127).Instead of ASCIIEncoding I can specify encoding myself (System.Text.Encoding.Getencoding(encoding).GetBytes(sourcedata)). But I have to specify correct encoding in this case, otherwise most of special characters are converted to "?". What should I do if I don't know the encoding?

Show A Summation Sign With The Top Portion Of The Summation Close To The Greek Sigma?

Dec 12, 2011

I would like to show a mathematical summation in a rich text box, using the standard mathematical notation that shows a Greek capital sigma, with the starting value of n below the sigma and an infinity sign above it. I have successfully done this using the code below, but I cannot get the infinity sign closer to the sigma. It looks like it is not part of the summation notation.

Does anyone have an idea how I can get the infinity sign lower? When I use a character offset to lower it, it also lowers the lines below it, so that the distance between the infinity sign and the sigma remains unchanged.

This is an Example of what I have right now, but it creates an infinite loop as it removes all characters including dashes, than adds a dash, which changes the text and removes the dash again.

Error When Getting A Substring Of X Characters Out Of A Parent String Of Less Than X Characters?

Feb 23, 2011

Not sure if too many people know this, but the following line will cause an error:

GroupName.Substring(0, 3) = "jt_"

....if the length of GroupName is less than 3 characters. I always thought it would simply return whatever characters in GroupName, but no, it errors. I must be thinking of the old VB6 days.So, I now have to change the code to:

If (GroupName.Length > 2) Then
If (GroupName.Substring(0, 3) = "jt_") Then

Note that the two comparisons need to be on separate lines. If they are on the same line, such as:

If (GroupName.Length > 2) and (GroupName.Substring(0, 3) = "jt_") Then then the code will still fail as the length command is executed at the same time as the substring command- which will cause the error when the GroupName length is less than 3.Just thought that those of us not aware of this should be!
