This class converts between any character sets and Unicode. It has one predefined instance, wxConvLocal, for the default user character set.
wxMBConv, wxEncodingConverter, wxMBConv classes overview
wxCSConv(const wxChar* charset)
Constructor. You may specify either the name of the character set you want to convert from/to or an encoding constant. If the character set name (or the encoding) is not recognized, ISO 8859-1 is used as fall back.
Destructor frees any resources needed to perform the conversion.
bool IsOk() const
Returns true if the charset (or the encoding) given at constructor is really available to use. Returns false if ISO 8859-1 will be used instead.
Note this does not mean that a given string will be correctly converted. A malformed string may still make conversion functions return wxCONV_FAILED.
This function is new since wxWidgets version 2.8.2
size_t MB2WC(wchar_t* buf, const char* psz, size_t n) const
Converts from the selected character set to Unicode. Returns length of string written to destination buffer.
size_t WC2MB(char* buf, const wchar_t* psz, size_t n) const
Converts from Unicode to the selected character set. Returns length of string written to destination buffer.
