Unicode texteditor: CL_GUI_TEXTEDIT - CL_WORD_SAPSCRIPT_EDITOR

Former Member

I have read, that the old cl_gui_textedit is not unicode compatible and SAP uses now either the old line editor or if exist the word editor (CL_WORD_SAPSCRIPT_EDITOR). We have serveral custom made programs based on the cl_gui_textedit and except of a few special characters we have no problems.

Anyone has an idea what a good strategy would be to solve these problems going forward? Convert everything to the word editor or even the btf editor?

What are you doing?

I have played with the btf editor, but if you want to print your first 1st and/or 2nd line of text on a report or even show it on the screen. It gets very complicated. I know all this can be done, but it is not very nice. The cl_gui_textedit is very nice and friendly to the user. What you say, means no easy solution and we have to get out of the cl_gui_textedit soner or later. More sooner than later.

Thanks any way.

I figured it out my self. CL_GUI_TEXT_EDIT is unicode compatible, you only have to be careful, when you print or email the text.

Thanks
