#1125 new defect/bug

WinCE: internal GUI omits description when it contains special chars (german umlauts)

Reported by: Owned by: mcr42
Priority: major Milestone: version 0.5.1
Component: gui/internal Version: git master
Severity: normal Keywords: gui/internal WinCE Umlauts special chars


when special chars are to be shown in a description (probably other fields too), the whole line is suppressed.

(For Linux, this works in the "show attributes" menu, but in the item menu umlauts are shown with a replacement char.)

To Reproduce: add a POI with 2 descriptions, with the first containing an umlaut:

type=roadwork label="Baustelle" description=" Verkehrseinschränkung" description=" Ampelregelung" 
0x13b9c8 0x67f529

POI will be shown, check the attributes. The description is shown, but the first line is empty. Replace the umlaut and the description is shown completely.

  • Milestone changed from want patch / contribution to version 0.5.1

  • Severity set to normal

older WinCE/PocketPC devices (at least versions <= 4.20.0) do not use Unicode but a country-specific Windows code page (e.g. code page 1250 or CP858 for western language, if I remember correctly from old OpenSynCE activities ...)
