SpecialCharactersViewer v1.0.1.0


Recommended Posts

I do not like Charmap, it's too small and you can't test a character with another font, you only get all chars for each font so it's not very handy.

20130911142003.jpg

SpecialCharactersViewer permit with the Segoe UI Symbol font to display a maximum ( not all! ) of  Ascii and Unicode characters.

Simple click on a char and the corresponding Chr or ChrW code is displayed. 

Free to you to choose another font for see if the selected character can be used with.

Windows XP do not have Segoe UI Symbol font, so it's more for Win7/Win8 users...

Previous downloads : 100

Source : SpecialCharactersViewer v1.0.1.0.au3

ExecutableSpecialCharactersViewer.exe.html

(Once this html file downloaded, double click on it for start the download)

 

Will be added to the next version of SciTE Hopper.

Hope it can help !  :)

Thanks UEZ !

The major inconvenient is the display of all labels... it's a bit slow with little config.

Even though I rarely even use charmap.exe I think this is a pretty neat idea.  I noticed one thing though, when I Click Next or Prev the drop down which says 0-799 etc doesn't change to reflect the page I'm on.  I see that Mlipok reported this issue.

Nicely done Wakillon

 

can you do a copy button like in charmap.exe ?

I am wondering if putting ClipPut($sChr) in line 503 wouldn't be sufficient?

When you select a char, it is automatically put in the clipboard and you can paste it to Word or anything else.

I wonder
Do I need to also copy information about the selected font.
 
I was wondering whether to open the RichEdit object, paste to the characters, change the font, and then copy the contents of RichEdit to clipboard.

      This "cow" seems funny to me,
          
      At this link (https://dodona.ugent.be/en/activities/1605325419/#) a brief rough description of what this script can do (sorry for the laziness, but that description may be fine).
      You can use the _CowSayWin() function to display a message formatted in a comic along with an ascii art figure in a standalone window,
      or
      you can use _String_CowSay() function to format a plain string in a comic along with an ascii art figure and have it returned in a string for your own purposes, you will probably use it in Consolewrite () or whatever ...
      The script makes use of the _StringSize() function written by @Melba23 (thanks Melba) of the StringSize.au3 udf that you can extract from the zip file located at this link: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/114034-stringsize-m23-new-version-16-aug-11/. You have to save that udf file in the same directory along with this script.
      It also makes use of the _WinSetClientSize() function written by @KaFu. (thanks kafu) This function is already built into the main script.
      I hope you have fun

      Hi all,
      I'm reading the file https://msedgedriver.azureedge.net/LATEST_RELEASE_83 using WinHTTP, and the string I get back looks like this when I view this file in Scite --
      xEFxBFxBF83.0.478.54 Here's what I've come up with as a means to strip off the Unicode BOM from the beginning of the string --
      If Asc($sDriverLatest) = 255 Then ConsoleWrite("Unicode detected!" & @CRLF) $sDriverLatest = BinaryToString($sDriverLatest, $SB_UTF16LE) If Asc($sDriverLatest) = 63 Then $sDriverLatest = StringMid($sDriverLatest,2) ; skip ? EndIf ConsoleWrite("Latest=" & $sDriverLatest & @CRLF) Is there a more reliable way to eliminate these unicode characters?

      Hello,
      I have a problem with getting first 10 characters with a big txt file, about 50k lines. I only want 10 characters of each line and save it into another file. I tried to use Stringleft every line and save it into another file but it was really slow to do it. I tried to save it into a variation like $var=$var&stringleft($file,10)&@CRLF. It's faster but still really slow.
      Can anybody help me with this
      Thank you so much

      Good morning,
       
      I am trying to read a Unicode utf8 string from a perl subprocess via StdoutRead.
      I use an AUtoIt GUI and display result in an 'Edit' control (see my code below) using 'Courier New', a font that can handle Unicode characters.
      I was expecting a result looking like (CMD console):
      ++$ chcp 65001>NUL: & perl -Mutf8 -CS -e "use 5.018; binmode STDOUT,q(:utf8); say qq(\x{03A9})" & chcp 850>NUL: Ω Instead I get someting like this (see downward the screen copy):
      ++$ chcp 1250>NUL: & perl -Mutf8 -CS -e "use 5.018; binmode STDOUT,q(:utf8); say qq(\x{03A9})" & chcp 850>NUL: Ω Obviously while I was expecting to receive an utf8 char, it seems to have been converted to Windows ANSI codepage 1250 (Windows default for Western/Central Europe, right ?)
      What am I doing wrong? Is there someone who could guide me?
       
      Here is my code and my output in the GUI.
      Creating and configuring the Edit control:
      Local $Edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit( "", 20, 110, 780, 500, BitOr($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_EDIT,$ES_MULTILINE,$ES_READONLY) ) GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, "This field will contain text result from external Perl command") GUICtrlSetFont($Edit1, 10, $FW_THIN, $GUI_FONTNORMAL, "Courier New")  
      Executing Perl command (note: `-Mutf8` and `-CS` garantees that I work in utf8 and STDOUT accepts wide-characters):
      local $ExePath = 'perl.exe -Mutf8 -CS ' ;~ if perl in PATH, no need for full path C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe local $Params = '-e "use 5.018; use utf8; use charnames q(:full); binmode STDOUT,q(:utf8);' & _ 'say scalar localtime; say qq(\N{GREEK CAPITAL LETTER OMEGA})"' local $Cmd = $ExePath & ' ' & $Params Local $iPID = Run($Cmd, "", @SW_HIDE, BitOR($STDERR_CHILD, $STDOUT_CHILD))  
      Reading STDOUT and displaying it into the Edit control:
      While 1 $sOutput &= StdoutRead($iPID) If @error Then ; Exit the loop if the process closes or StdoutRead returns an error. ExitLoop EndIf WEnd If $sOutput <> '' Then GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, $sOutput) EndIf  
      And now, what I get on my GUI:
       

    • By Skysnake
      'F‌inal' ; <========= problem between F and i 'F‌inal' ; <========= problem between F and i 'Final' ; <========= Notepad ANSI, no problem
      F‌inal

      PostgreSQL complains about that red dot.  Notepad++ marks the first word.
      Notepad said it contains Unicode.  Saved as ANSI and put back. Red dot is gone.
       
      the Text is inserted manually into an AutoIt Input box.  Things get done to it, and it ends up in a SQL database.  The data seems fine, but when I start generating reports, all kinds of funny problems show up.
       
      If I can ID that character, I can remove it.
      Any ideas?
