Non-Ascii Chars in Filenames

Martin,  

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 :)


Best,
