FileOpen with a unicode attribute

10 posts in this topic




It dosent, at least not for me with that exact code, unless the file does not exist .

try this

If FileExists("file.ini") Then
    $o = FileOpen("file.ini", 32)
    If $o = -1 Then
        MsgBox(0, 0, "error")
        ConsoleWrite($o & @LF)
        Exit
    EndIf
    FileClose($o)
    Exit
EndIf
MsgBox(0,"Error","File does not exist" & @LF & "Check file path and spelling")

Ah I see

I want to write unicode data in an ini file but I don't want to make it unicode manually with notepad everytime.

How can I do it?

I would say, just create the file from within your script.

If Not FileExists("file.ini") Then
    FileWrite("file.ini","")
    $o = FileOpen("file.ini", 32)
    If $o = -1 Then
        MsgBox(0, 0, "error")
        ConsoleWrite($o & @LF)
        Exit
    EndIf
    FileClose($o)
    Exit
EndIf
MsgBox(0,"Error","File does not exist" & @LF & "Check file path and spelling")

I plan to use Ini functions on that file so I think opening and closing the file wont affect the Ini functions

Is it possible to just set the file's "attribute" to unicode?

There's nothing like an "Unicode attribute". Text files using Unicode mostly rely on a BOM (byte order mark) to detect UTF-* encoding. Of course programs which are bounded to always using Unicode in a fixed encoding don't need that.

I don't believe that .INI files can be UTF-* encoded when used thru .INI system calls, but I might be proved wrong again.

IniRead() and IniWrite() can write unicode characters but after IniWrite() finishes writing, the unicode characters it wrote turn into ?'s.

The solution I found is this:

But I think it can be done in an other way.
