Set RVStyle.DefCodePage runtime

Post by Marsianin »

My program is multilingual so when user change program language I need to change CodePage for imported TXT files too.
RichViewEdit is Unicode but I need it for TXT import.
Setting RVStyle.DefCodePage in IDE does the job but run-time it changes nothing.
I tried to set codepage to 1251 run-time (was 0 - ANSI Default) and imported Cyrillic text file - got wrong characters.

Looks like this does not work:
RVStyle1.DefCodePage:=1251;

It does not matter if you assign this property at run- or design-time.
However, Charset property of text styles have higher priority than this property. This property is used only if the text Charset=DEFAULT_CHARSET.

So how can I import a TXT file in desired codepage? Or change it after import...

If you define the file code page in DefCodePage, then:
- if you load using LoadText, specify the index of text style having Charset=DEFAULT_CHARSET
- if you insert using InsertTextFromFile, apply a text style with Charset=DEFAULT_CHARSET before calling this function.

I'm inserting via InsertTextFromFile to a not empty Unicode document so I have to select inserted data and apply style?
How can I select it?

You need just assign CurTextStyleNo, or call ApplyTextStyle.
Do you use RichViewActions?

Yes, I'm still using rvActions but step by step removing them from my project.
So when should I assign CurTextStyleNo and will it affect current text with this style?

Yes, it will affect the inserted text.
In future version, we plan to add a code page of text as a parameter.

Can you tell me when do you plan to implement it?

The solution is included in the new update (available for registered users).
But only for Unicode documents.
In the text saving/loading methods, you can specify an additional optional CodePage parameter, defining a text file encoding. This code page will be used for conversion between ANSI/DBCS (file) and Unicode (document).

RichViewActions display a dialog for choosing a text file encoding when saving/loading a text file.

This feature will be available in the public (trial) version soon, at the beginning of the next week.
