I am trying to display utf16 characters that are above 65000 and having difficulty getting it done.
FE4E6 is the American Flag (as an example).
How does one display this in a Webview, EditText or ???
Thanks in advance.

B4X:
Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
   Activity.LoadLayout("1")
   WebView1.LoadHtml("<p>&#xFE4E6;</p>")
 
   EditText1.Text = UnicodeToString(0xFE4E6)
End Sub

Sub UnicodeToString (codepoint As Int) As String
   Dim bc As ByteConverter
   Dim b() As Byte = bc.IntsToBytes(Array As Int(codepoint))
   Return BytesToString(b, 0, 4, "UTF32")
End Sub

Thanks Erel!
This looks like it runs on KitKat very well. Can it function on ICS or JellyBean?

I tried it on ICS and it doesn't seem to work. Does ICS support the UTF16/32?

You are right. I had loaded a custom font and then later in the test program had loaded another ...
I appreciate your help, Erel.

In ICS, the B-) generates a Unicode character and this is working well. The edit text shows the correct smiley.
How can I get the Unicode code point value? Is there a translation table for these texts? If so, it seems they vary between Android OS's...ICS, JB, ...
The reason I need this is that I can't find a "map" that gives the code point value for the text representations (like above).
B4X:
From ICS soft keyboard smiley button
":-)"
"B-)"
":'("
":-["
":-!"
":)"
":-*"
":-D"
":-X"
":-$"
":-O"
":-P"
":-\"
";)"
"o.O"
":0"
":-|"
":("
"x-("
"<3"
Thanks,

Thanks Manfred,
We have written our own and as such, we are mapping them...

Does anyone know how/where/which codepage/unicode values the Korean character set resides?
If so, can you please advise on how I might reach this in code?
Thanks,
Rusty

Thanks Erel.
I need t be able to "combine" Unicode characters such as Korean where selecting consonants and vowels result in a single combined ligature/glyph.
Does android/b4a support this function or is there a "formula" by which this can be accomplished?
for example: ㅁ plus ㅕ results in the character 며 adding another ㅁ results in 몀

Rusty

:) Nothing wrong with being RUSTY, I've been that for my whole life :)
Thanks for the speedy response.
Do you know how to "Add" the consonant value to the vowel value that points to the codepage/glyph with the resultant character?
Thanks,
Rusty

Are there other "formats" for normalize?
Some of the combinations have multiple "pieces" i.e. "ㅁ", "ㅕ", "ㄱ" result in 멱
When I send it an array of three elements, it doesn't combine all three, just the first two and then sets the third as an independent character.
THanks
