Hello guys,

I don't have much knowledge to fix functions, I have some function from system.asp that comes from D7 and I need to make it work in D5.

This functions works with UTF8.

Could you give me a small project with all function working?

Thanks

// UnicodeToUTF8(3):
// Scans the source data to find the null terminator, up to MaxBytes
// Dest must have MaxBytes available in Dest.

function UnicodeToUtf8(Dest: PChar; Source: PWideChar; MaxBytes: Integer): Integer;
var
len: Cardinal;
begin
len := 0;
if Source <> nil then
while Source[len] <> #0 do
Inc(len);
Result := UnicodeToUtf8(Dest, MaxBytes, Source, len);
end;

// UnicodeToUtf8(4):
// MaxDestBytes includes the null terminator (last char in the buffer will be set to null)
// Function result includes the null terminator.
// Nulls in the source data are not considered terminators - SourceChars must be accurate

function UnicodeToUtf8(Dest: PChar; MaxDestBytes: Cardinal; Source: PWideChar; SourceChars: Cardinal): Cardinal;
var
i, count: Cardinal;
c: Cardinal;
begin
Result := 0;
if Source = nil then Exit;
count := 0;

if Dest <> nil then
begin

break;
Dest[count] := Char($E0 or (c shr 12));

Here is a library that will help with the conversion.

Delphi 5 doesn't have unicode support except through WideChar
