Quote character in TDBGrid and TMemo

Quote character in TDBGrid and TMemo

I am upgrading an application from Delphi2005 to XE2. The nature of the application means the " character for inches occurs frequently in text. This has caused problems in the past where it was not displayed correctly but I always found a solution. In XE2 under Win7 I find it impossible to display correctly.

Any ideas? The text is normal strings, not Unicode.

RE: Quote character in TDBGrid and TMemo

from D2009 your normal strings have become unicode and also the components that use String.
So you'll need to convert your non-unicode text to unicode so it can be shown correctly in a TMemo.


Helping people is my job...

RE: Quote character in TDBGrid and TMemo

Many thanks. The real problem is that the database components I used are not UniPrint ready. So a bigger upgrade than I thought ....
