Dear All,

Always I am reading textfiles with texts written in Spanish, Portuguese or French and display them in a memo or listbox I have problems with characters with accents, such as ´á´, ´é´, ´ã´.


Please, do you know as I solve this problem?


Thanks

Yes, you must use the OemToChar function:

var
str1,str2:Pchar;
OemToChar(str1,str2);

str1 is the string to convert, and str2 ist the converted string.

Best Regards.
Marcos.

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
Try this example:

var
str2:Pchar;
nCont:Integer;
begin
nCont:=0;
listbox1.Items.LoadFromFile('D:\Prueba.txt');


  For nCont:=0 to (Listbox1.Items.Count -1) do
  begin
  OemToChar(PChar(Listbox1.Items[nCont]),str2);
  Listbox1.Items[nCont]:=str2;
  ShowMessage(str2);//Only for test.
  end;

end;

Best Regards
Marcos.

Thank you very much.

I had a code which used a procedure for each change of characters. Now it is will be possible using only a procedure. Great!


Best regards,
