I'm trying to check whether a file has been saved with UTF-8 encoding (with/without BOM/preamble) but in my tests .VerifyFile always returns 0.
ActiveX | v184.108.40.206
sFilePathLocal = "e:\temp\test.txt" with Server.CreateObject("Chilkat_9_5_0.FileAccess") .WriteEntireTextFile sFilePathLocal, "abc-£-123", "utf-8", 1 end with with Server.CreateObject("Chilkat_9_5_0.Charset") response.write .VerifyFile("utf-8", sFilePathLocal) end with
Doh - I was using .UnlockComponent with the wrong code. Thank you!
Check the Charset object's LastErrorText property after calling VerifyFile.
Also, examine the contents of the test.txt file using a good editor such as EmEditor (where you can view as binary/hex) or use a hex editor.
The text.txt file should contain this: EF BB BF 61 62 63 2D C2 A3 2D 31 32 33
The "EF BB BF" are the utf-8 BOM bytes. The £ is composed of the bytes C2 A3 in utf-8.
