View Full Version : javascript - reading local text file - charset issue

26 Apr 2012, 9:20 AM

I am reading local text file using input-type-file and FileReader.readAsText(). The problem arises when the local text file contains characters like . In that case it is converted to . Of course I can set encoding manually to iso8859-1 as a parameter of FileReader.readAsText(File, encoding) but the thing is that I have no clue what kind of encoding user has set on his side.

My question is whether there is an option to determine encoding on client machine ?

Best regards

You will need to google this, this is not an Ext JS question.
