Unicode - How To Convert Posted "english" Characters From International PC's

Jul 5, 2010

I have a WebForm search page that gets occasional hits from international visitors. When they enter in text, it appears to be plain ASCII a-z, 0-9 but they are printed in bold and my "is this text" logic can't handle the input. Is there any easy way in ASP.NET to convert unicode characters that equate to A-Z, 0-9 into plain old text?

Manually Entering Special (unicode/international/extended) Characters In The URL Bar

Jan 6, 2010

I want to create a page that can read extended characters in the QueryString. While this normally is not a problem, there is one case where I don't manage: when the QueryString is manually entered (or even pasted).

Here is a simple test-case:


This works fine both when clicking the hyperlink or submitting the form. However, when you enter the special characters manually in the URL, or in some browsers even when you just highlight the URL bar and click Enter to open the page, the characters will be mangled. (You may need to empty your cache or perform a forced refresh to see these results.

In Internet Explorer 8:

Clicking the hyperlink shows the characters unencoded in the URL bar. Submitting the form shows the characters double-byte encoded (for example, the first character "å" (small letter a with ring above, unicode position 0xA5) is encoded as %C3%A5 instead of just as %A5. In both cases, the output shows the correct characters.After clicking the hyperlink (which creates an URL with readable characters), clicking the URL bar to highlight the URL and pressing Enter to open the page, shows square boxes instead of the characters as output. Note that you may have force a reload of the page to see this. The same happens when you enter characters manually in the URL bar.Highlighting the URL bar and submitting the double-byte encoded URL (as it is created by the form) shows the output as it should.Manually entering single-byte encoded characters ("%A5%B8%A6") will again show boxes instead of characters.

Localization :: International Characters / Application Is Changing The Characters

Jan 5, 2011

I have a application that takes a tab delimited text file parses and the inserts the data. Some of the data has international characters. My problem is it appears that my application is changing the characters. For Example the file might contain something lke this Andrlová and is converting it to this Andrlov�

I am passing this into a sproc. The datatypes for my paramater & DB Field is nVarChar(50). If I insert the data directly into my table or if I call my sproc from a query window and pass in some data it works fine, but when my app touches the data it appears to get messed with.

C# - FileUpload Server Control And Unicode Characters?

Mar 15, 2011

I'm using the FileUpload server control to upload a HTML document previously saved(as webpage; filtered) from MS Word. The charset is windows-1252.The document has smart quotation marks(curly) as well as regular quotes. It also has some blank spaces(apparently) that when looked deeply are characters other than the normal TAB or SPACE.When capturing the file content in a StreamReader, those special characters are translated to question marks. I assume its because the default encoidng is UTF-8 and the file is Unicode.

I went ahead and created the StreamReader using Unicode encoding, then replacing all the unwanted characters with the correct ones(code that I actually found in stackoverflow). This seems to work....just that I cant convert the string back to UTF-8 to display it in a asp:literal.
The code is there, its supposed to work....but the output(ConvertToASCII) is unreadable.Please look below:

protected void btnUpload_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
StreamReader sreader;


Also, as I said before, there are some more "transparent" characters that seem to correspond to where the word doc has numbering indentation that I have no idea how to capture their unicode value to replace them....so if you have any tips,

Databases :: Page Gets Stuck If User Enters Unicode Characters?

Feb 18, 2010

I have a form that allows users to post text to a MySQL database using an OdbcConnection. Everything works great until a user entered unicode characters into the textbox and sends the data. Suddenly the page freezes and is not redirected to the next page as programmed. When I check the database later it comes up with all of the users data intact, including the unicode characters. I've duplicated this problem several times by entering unicode characters and then entering only ASCII. It happens every time unicode characters are used. Is the problem on the ASP.Net side or the MySQL side? Here is my code. The description string is from a textbox entered on the form.I thought about using a RegEx to get rid of any non-ascii characters before sending the data. Is that recommended? How do I do it?

Replacing Spanish Characters With The English Equivalent

Jul 22, 2010

Using vb.net 2005/asp.net I thought I had the issue solved: I have some strings with spanish characters such as "ñ" and I need to replace characters with their non-spanish equivalent, ex: the example I just mentioned would be changed to "n".


when I put a breakpoint I see that usually my code replaces the characters the way that I want and all is good but some replacements are not working well and looking at my breakpoint it appears that there are non-readable characters that are included with the spanish characters and it seems that I need to do some kind of normalization on the string but not sure what to do. I have a text "caroliné" that i processing and in the code above it appears to replace the last char with an "e" but when I return the value from the function I am able to see some non readable characters (appearing on my watchlist as a small square) and the resulting string is actually "carolina" which is confusing.
