View Full Version : Jsonreader extended ascii fails

18 Sep 2009, 10:40 AM
I have a grid that displays data from a json store. If the data sent from the server has an extended ascii character in it, for example: Muņoz, then no data shows up in the grid.

Anyone have a fix or workaround for this?

What encoding does your server use to convert the characters into the byte stream that is sent to the browser?

Does it correctly set the Content-Type header to inform the browser of this so that it can decode the byte stream back into Unicode?

Currently I don't do anything so that's probably it. Do you have an example what I can set that to so Json will read the extended ascii characters?

You should know your own server technology. You tell it how to encode, and you tell it what HTTP headers to send which contain information about this. I only know Java/JEE.

That's what I'm using. Do you think response.setCharacterEncoding("utf-8"); would work?

Yes. And also set the header.

response.setHeader("Content-type", "application/json; charset=UTF-8");

Before you acccess the writer.

As someone discovered just a few hours ago on these boards!

Excellent! Thank you very much!

Please excuse my ignorance, could someone move this topic to help? Not a bug.
