Problem with the chr() method

Problem with the chr() method

Problem with the chr() method

i'm using the chr() method to generate hexadecimal codes. When I use decimal code under 127 like chr(127), it works perfectly, but when i try to generate an hexa code with a decimal char from 150 to 255, the hexadecimal code generated isn't the good one !
does someone allready have the problem ?


RE: Problem with the chr() method

I think you problem is that 150 is a windows char in OEM format.

You'll have to convert the string you're using to ansi with the  OemToAnsi() function or the AansiToOem() function.

Hope this helps...

Check the manual for help on oemToAnsi()
