Senai asked 7 years ago

Hi, I am using a select edit type for one column. The values have special characters like i-acute, u-acute…..(latin letters) in it. So how do I escape this characters for the drop down list to work properly. Currently it is not displaying any list item. I have written it like this:

$col["edittype"] = "select";
$col["editoptions"] = array("value"="1:SABE;2:TIAN LTD.;3:GTHAIE LTD.;4:RIO ;5:MBER LTD;6:ZHP CO. TD.;7:DROP;8:NGO CHEW;9:LIB FACTORY;10:COMMERCEBV;11:OOD CO. LTD;12:INDUSTRIA DE ;13:CARAMOS S/A;14:WEIF;15:Lind;16:LIY,;17:Shandong, Ltd;18:CMAX Int'l rp;19:Tia Co., Ltd ;20:TI CO.,LTD;21:G. MAR & C. S.P.A.");

But the list is displaying empty.
thanks for your urgent reply.

Try using utf8_decode() for non-english characters.
$col["editoptions"] = array("value"=> utf8_decode("……..") );
