Returns a String with the same data as the given string, but with the encoding of the passed encoding.
result = sourceVariable.DefineEncoding(encoding)
The result of encoding str using the encoding specified by enc.
The String to be encoded.
The TextEncoding to be used to encode str.
This function is useful when you have a string whose encoding is known to you but not to your application. The encoding of all strings created in your application is UTF-8, so you don't have to use DefineEncoding on them.
The following code takes 8 bytes from a MemoryBlock and sets the encoding to UTF16.
Var source As String = MyMemoryBlock.StringValue(0, 8)
TextField1.Text = source.DefineEncoding(Encodings.UTF16)
This code uses DefineEncoding when reading text from a TCPSocket.
TextField1.Text = TCPSocket1.ReadAll.DefineEncoding(Encodings.UTF8)
