I’ve tried it, for test purposes of course because it’s no use in iOS; though still no luck.
_answer file “select file…”
_put it into tFilename
_set the filename of image 1 to tFilename
_put tFilename & cr & the filename of image 1 into field 1
Results are same, Ascii-255 works fine that is up to U+00FF;
beyond that it’s pure unicode - no ascii support.
The image looks empty in Livecode
and the unicode chars of the filename appears as ?.
There isn’t any workaround, I guess :/
so, we’ll wait Livecode 7 and in the meantime find a way to dodge customers’ complaints :)
