ASCII to Windows numToChar List

Post by deeverd » Sun Jul 29, 2007 9:18 pm

Hello Windows Forum,

I recently needed some help in finding and getting rid of "rounded quotation marks" that were plaguing me in a program I was writing. After being kindly informed about the numToChar script, I spent some hours going through numbers from 0 to over 300. The following list is a compilation of the useful information that I found (all the numbers that generated a character in Revolution), and which is specific to my Windows XP platform. Hopefully somebody else can use this information as well, and maybe this will spare them from having to input each numToChar one at a time with a "put command" to see what they get.

All the best from a newbie, deeverd

Emoticons on the Previous Posting

Post by deeverd » Sun Jul 29, 2007 9:22 pm

BTW,

I have no idea why several smiley emoticons appeared on the posting I just submitted. For some strange reason, they popped into several places where the number "8" should have been.

Use the code button/tag to enclose such things, that'll keep the smiley's from kicking in.

Or, just check the box "Disable Smiles in this post", which you can still do now by clicking "Edit this post".

Disable Smileys

Post by deeverd » Mon Jul 30, 2007 7:55 pm

Thanks,

I had no idea I could edit a posting after submitting it. That definitely took care of the Smilies.

One quick question: I also see the checkbox for "disable BBCode." What is BBCode and should I disable it?

When writing your reply, if you observe the interface closely you will see a link marked "BBCode" pointing here:

BBCode

Post by deeverd » Thu Aug 02, 2007 8:00 pm

Wow! BBCode is pretty cool.

I just cut and pasted a small portion of the information of what BBCode can do in a posting for newbies such as myself who never knew about it before, but for much more detailed information on the possibilities, it’s best to review the following link that was kindly provided by xApple in the post up above.

What is BBCode?
BBCode is a special implementation of HTML. Whether you can actually use BBCode in your posts on the forum is determined by the administrator. In addition, you can disable BBCode on a per post basis via the posting form. BBCode itself is similar in style to HTML: tags are enclosed in square braces [ and ] rather than < and > and it offers greater control over what and how something is displayed. Depending on the template you are using you may find adding BBCode to your posts is made much easier through a clickable interface above the message area on the posting form. Even with this you may find the following guide useful.

How to create bold, italic and underlined text
BBCode includes tags to allow you to quickly change the basic style of your text. This is achieved in the following ways:
• To make a piece of text bold enclose it in , eg.

Hello

will become Hello
• For underlining use , for example:

Good Morning

becomes Good Morning
• To italicise text use , eg.

This is Great!

would give This is Great!


P.S. It does a lot more than just bold, underlining, and italics.
Cheers, deeverd
