lz_report : UTF8 problem with text datatype was created by BENOIT LESAGE
Hi,

I recently upgrade from CT 6.30 to 6.90 and met some trouble with utf8 using mariadb text datatype:

CT 6.30 : correct display for varchar and text data imy reports
CT 6.90 : correct display for varchar data but wrong display for text data in my reports

NB: same mariadb database in both cases, same report file. The compiled applications correcty display the data into table/fields edit screens (CT6.30 and CT 6.90).

Regards,
Benoit

Hello.

Did you test it with CT 6.80 ?
www.pilotlogic.com/codetyphon/zips/CodeTyphonIns_680.zip

If it is ok with CT 6.80 maybe is is a related with new fpc rtl/rtti.

Hi Fred,
I've tested my application with a CT6.80 and it seems to solve my issue, thank you so much!..
In order to solve this issue with CT6.90 could you please give me an advise on where and how to post a request for this? Is it a fpc or a CT issue?
Any chance to get an update for CT6.90 release?

Thanks in advance,
With kind regards,
Benoît

Huh, I would like to give you advises for that new fpc rtl/rtti implementations.
(And I think CT staff would like too).

But working with rtti is very hard, it is about binary access.
IMHO, I feel very sad that fpc does not care to make things backward compatible, or give more detailed info + examples, how to do to update code to be still compatible with new fpc commits.

Hello.

I think CT 7.00 did fix it!
