I suggest you post that question on FR support forums
I have data in CP852 in DBF.
In delphi FastReport, which is unicode I do manual CP852-> UnicodeString (delphi internal unicode string type). Delphi FR Datasets work with UnicodeStrings, which are supplied, and that works Ok.
Spirin FR version uses Harbour internal conversion, which works automatic using. It uses older Delphi, which is not unicode, but uses Font.Charset. This works fine when _SET_CODEPAGE, and _SET_DBCODEPAGE are set.
Xailr FRX seems to ignore Font.Charset - this propbably means it is compiled with Unicode strings. But it is unclear how and when is translation from Habour string to Delphi unicode string performed.
So, how should I prepare string data for FRX? If Unicode is supported, how can I utilize it? Or does it respect HB translation support?
This very much Xailer FR related quiestin. Please advise.
