Converts:
  • a character string in ANSI format (Windows) into a character string in UNICODE format.
  • a buffer containing a character string in ANSI format (Windows) into a buffer containing a character string in UNICODE format.
Reminder:
  • ANSI is the format of characters according to the Windows standard.
  • UNICODE is a mechanism for encoding characters. The UNICODE format is used to manage the different languages and the different character sets.
Example
MyUnicodeBuffer is Buffer
// Convert MyAnsiBuffer
// that contains a character string in ANSI format
// into a buffer containing a character string
// in UNICODE format
MyUnicodeBuffer = AnsiToUnicode(MyAnsiBuffer)
Reports and QueriesWindows
// Code to use in a non-Unicode project
MyUnicodeString is UNICODE string
MyUnicodeString = AnsiToUnicode("Developing is fantastic", charsetGreek)

Result of string conversion

The result of the conversion is a character string or a buffer in UNICODE format. This string (or this buffer) can only be handled by the variables and functions that support the UNICODE format.
If a confusion occurs between a string in UNICODE format and a string in ANSI format, the conversion will be implicitly performed.
See Managing the UNICODE format for more details.
