Recommended Posts

The problem is simple

I want to create a button with ⋮ three dot text.

I cannot get this to work.

 

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    AutoIt Version: 3.3.14.5
    Author:         Skysnake

    Script Function:
    Make a dot menu  ⋮

#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

; Script Start - Add your code below here
ConsoleWrite("Attempt to display  3 vertical dot menu text ⋮ " & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite(" ⋮  " & "  ⋮ " & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("0xE2 " & ChrW(0xEF) & @CRLF) ; UTF8
ConsoleWrite("0x8B " & ChrW(0x8B) & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("0xAE " & ChrW(0xAE) & @CRLF)

ConsoleWrite("0xE28BAE " & ChrW("0xE28BAE") & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("65535 " & ChrW("65535") & @CRLF) ; --> last expected A unicode code in the range 0-65535 (e.g., 65 returns the capital letter A).
ConsoleWrite(" 15 " & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("205D " & ChrW("205D") & @CRLF) ; tricolon
ConsoleWrite("2D57 " & ChrW("2D57") & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("22EE " & ChrW("22EE") & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("FE19 " & ChrW("FE19") & @CRLF) ; presentation form for vertical horizontal ellipsis
ConsoleWrite(" 19 " & @CRLF)
;ConsoleWrite("Asc( ⋮ ) " & Asc(⋮) & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("Asc(⋮) " & Asc("⋮") & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("AscW(⋮) " & AscW("⋮") & @CRLF) ; recognizes the symbol
ConsoleWrite("8942 " & ChrW(8942) & @CRLF) ; but prints a ?

Set SciTE console to UTF8 then:

U_ConsoleWrite(ChrW("0x22EE") & @LF)
; same as
U_ConsoleWrite("⋮" & @LF)

; Unicode-aware ConsoleWrite
Func U_ConsoleWrite($s)
    ConsoleWrite(BinaryToString(StringToBinary($s & @LF, 4), 1))
EndFunc   ;==>U_ConsoleWrite

Thanks @jchd, as a matter of policy I have always used AutoIt with default settings. Where do I get the SciTE console settings?

Menu > Options > Open User Options File and add/change settings so that a good Unicode fixed-sized font is used (<== 1) and UTF8 encoding is used (<== 2). I also set UTF8 (65001) as .au3 files encoding (<== 3). These are protected user options which survive SciTE4AutoIt3 updates and reinstalls unless you delete/overwrite SciTEUser.properties.
