24U SimpleCode Plug-In addresses two main text encoding issues for solutions migrated from FileMaker Pro 6 to FileMaker Pro 7 and above. It fixes text that was previously incorrectly converted to Unicode, and also lets you use old-style FileMaker Pro 6 compatible plug-ins with non-English languages.
With 24U SimpleCode Plug-In, text encoding issues are no longer an excuse for not upgrading to FileMaker Pro 7 and above.
- Reinterpret Unicode of incorrectly translated one-byte encoding
- Bring foreing languages support back to old-style plug-ins
- During conversion from FileMaker Pro 6 to FileMaker Pro 7, some text in a field was incorrectly converted to Unicode. This plug-in can fix this problem by undoing the conversion and then re-doing correctly.
- An old-style plug-in’s function, such as External(“24uD-ShowDialog”, parameter) does not work properly with foreign languages, because some characters get lost. Instead of waiting for a new, FileMaker Pro 7 native version of the plug-in, you can now use SCode_External(“24uD-ShowDialog”; parameter; encoding) as a wrapper that converts your text to the correct encoding before invoking the plug-in.
