I’m wondering if there is a a “correct” or best practice for getting unicode in and out of an iOS UITextField under LiveCode 7. Specifically, is TextEncode and TextDecode necessary or advisable?

So far, this seems to work for me:

 put mobileControlGet (sEmailFieldID, "unicodeText") into fld “Email"


But is there some situation where this might be more advisable as a general solution:

 put TextDecode(mobileControlGet (sEmailFieldID, "unicodeText”),"UTF-16") into fld “Email”
