I am using FlashPaper on a project and I select the text in the display using the text selector icon and then use fp.getSelectedText() - this gives me the Unicode of the selected text - Now how do I convert this Unicode text into normal text?

Hi Dushan,

I tried using System.useCodePage but it doesnt help.

This is the code which I am using:

System.useCodepage = true;

this.createEmptyMovieClip("holder", 100);
holder.loadMovie("flex.swf");

intID = setInterval(select, 5000);

function select()
{
fp = holder.getIFlashPaper();
trace(fp.getSelectedText());
}

and this is the output I am getting when I have some text selected in the loaded FlashPaper

Hi,
That only tells flash to use default charset on the computer the flash movie is running.

System.useCodepage = true;  is actually good for debug and developement time, but I WOULD NEVER SUGGEST it to use in production, since it's not portable solution!

Here's a table listing symbols of Mac's encoding:

Here's a standard ANSI encoding you need to convert to:

Sorry I can't give you an already-made conversion table, but with these links, it should be straightforward to make one (use unicode numbers to join two tables).
