On the Fly UTF-8 encoder/decoder

Postby fkapnist » Fri May 27, 2016 10:56 am

If you use javascript to get a meta tag such as Page Title which might be in a foreign language, you can't bring it into Neobook as a variable unless it is converted to decimal code. When you want to send it back to HTML the variable must be converted again to foreign language. It took me forever to find the code below, I tried dozens of coders and decoders but nothing seemed to work in a way that could go in and out of Neobook without loss of data. This code can be modified to use on the fly when setting and getting Neobook variables:

find it on the web here:
https://mothereff.in/utf-8

:)
Here is a stripped down version for use in Neobook.
You can insert it into your HTML pages or use it as an external script (utf8.js). But since this is for Neobook beginners here is a simple secret: Put the entire code in a webBrowser object (BrowserLoadFromStr) and position the object to the left of your publication so the user will never see it. Now you can use basic Clipboard cut and paste or other simple Actions to send UTF-8 strings in and out of the text fields and into your publication (P.S. you must give names or ids to the text fields to suit your publication)...

if you copy and paste between WebBrowser objects you do not need to code/decode Unicode at all. You can do it directly with javascript and the clipboard (because using Neobook action commands will lose the correct Unicode character display)

For example, to copy a web page title(info) to the caption of a HTML button(B3), don't use execCommand("Copy"). Use window.clipboardData.getData. (Backup the clipboard contents before and restore them after. There are also 3rd party clipboard managers that can handle more than just text)

SetVar "[TempClipboard]" "[Clipboard]"
BrowserExecScript "WebBrowser1" "var info=(window.document.title);|window.clipboardData.setData ([#34]Text[#34], info);" "JScript"
BrowserExecScript "WebBrowser2" "info=(window.clipboardData.getData ([#34]Text[#34]));|window.document.getElementById('B3').value=info;" "JScript"
SetVar "[Clipboard]" "[TempClipboard]"
