    SilkTest & International Character sets

    Hi All,

    Just wondering if anyone has any experiences that they would like to share around this. We are looking at trying to make use of our recently purchased version of SilkTest 5.5 for testing international charecter sets. Are there any limitations? Will the product even do this? If it does, are there any nasty things that I should know now. If it doesn't are their any add-on's to introduce that functionality?

    Thanks as always,

    Mike

    Mike,

    SilkTest will handle single byte character sets no problem. You should look at SilkTest international if you need to test double byte languages.

    Regards,

    Paul

    Re: SilkTest & International Character sets

    I found something suspicious. So if your query result looks un-expected you might want to check if Silk altered your string.

    Most ppl uses Latin-1(West Europe) http://czyborra.com/charsets/iso8859.html#ISO-8859-1

    It covers quiet a few lnaguages. Anyhow French is included in this Latin-1 character set. I found out that the chr(146) - an apostrophe(I believe which looks like a comma) - is being changed to a question mark when I do a SetText(). If you are curious, some French text uses this kind of apostrophe, example after this word "jusqu".

    Make my long story short, you might see some valid characters interpreted differently by silk.
