> However, I cannot find anything in the JavaFX API that let me do that? The PasswordField component does not display masked text by default. However you can use PasswordField with TextField and toggle masked/unmasked text using these components respectively. Where the unmasked text is shown by TextField, as in example demo below. > I … Read more
ASCII is a subset of UTF-8, so all ASCII files are already UTF-8 encoded. The bytes in the ASCII file and the bytes that would result from “encoding it to UTF-8” would be exactly the same bytes. There’s no difference between them, so there’s no need to do anything. It looks like your problem is … Read more
UTF-8 does not use one byte all the time, it’s 1 to 4 bytes. The first 128 characters (US-ASCII) need one byte. The next 1,920 characters need two bytes to encode. This covers the remainder of almost all Latin alphabets, and also Greek, Cyrillic, Coptic, Armenian, Hebrew, Arabic, Syriac and Tāna alphabets, as well as … Read more
From the documentation: The FSO can read only ASCII text files. You cannot use the FSO to read Unicode files or to read binary file formats such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. Since you got weird characters, I guess that’s somewhat incorrect and the file was read in some 8-bit windows code page because … Read more
My suspicion is you are falling foul of the classic form post character encoding mismatch problem. It goes like this:- You have a form which is presented to the client using the UTF-8 encoding. As a result the browser posts text values entered into the form using UTF-8 encoding. The action page receiving the post … Read more
The maximum number of bytes per character is 4 according to RFC3629 which limited the character table to U+10FFFF: In UTF-8, characters from the U+0000..U+10FFFF range (the UTF-16 accessible range) are encoded using sequences of 1 to 4 octets. (The original specification allowed for up to six byte character codes for code points past U+10FFFF.) … Read more
Regarding this part: When I convert it to UTF-8 without bom and close file, the file is again ANSI when I reopen. The easiest solution is to avoid the problem entirely by properly configuring Notepad++. Try Settings -> Preferences -> New document -> Encoding -> choose UTF-8 without BOM, and check Apply to opened ANSI … Read more
UTF-8 is a multibyte encoding that can represent any Unicode character. ISO 8859-1 is a single-byte encoding that can represent the first 256 Unicode characters. Both encode ASCII exactly the same way.
