Manualy set characters encoding in WebView

Hi All Smiley Happy

 

I've strange problem with WebView in Cascades (QML) web page that I need to open and show is using UTF-8 but there is no declaration in <head> and WebView shows it with ISO-8859-2 encoding.

 

Can I do something with that?

 

 

Thanks

Re: Manualy set characters encoding in WebView

Take a look here:

https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/reference/bb__cascades__webview.html#property-settings

and here:

https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/reference/bb__cascades__websettings.html#property-defaultt...

Maybe what you need is:

In QML

webView.settings.defaultTextCodecName = "UTF-8"

in C++:

pWebView->settings()->setDefaultTextCodecName (QString("UTF-8"));
