Special Character

QuestionsSpecial Character
Jorge asked 6 years ago

Hi from Spain,

We have a problem with the special characters in our grid.

I'm going to try explain it.

If I create a new record in our grid, and we write some character like for example "España" or "30 €" or "Informática"

This special characters are stored in our Database like "España", "30 €", "Informáica"

We would like that this data, store in the database like the first example.

I have seen a similar issue (https://phpgrid.desk.com/customer/portal/questions/5700458-trouble-reading-portuguese-characters-from-mysql) but I don't know what is its resolution.

Sorry for my english

Best regards.

Emailed you a working code, and steps to changes. I've tested and verified it's working.

step1: add events in grid config, where $g = new jqgrid();

$e = array();
$e["on_update"] = array("update_client", null, true);
$e["on_data_display"] = array("filter_display", null, true);

function update_client($data)
foreach($data["params"] as $k=>$d)
$data["params"][$k] = htmlentities($data["params"][$k],ENT_QUOTES,'utf-8');

function filter_display($data)
foreach($data["params"] as &$d)
foreach($d as $k=>$v)
$d[$k] = html_entity_decode($d[$k]);

step2: Edit jqgrid_dist.php and comment out following lines.

if (isset($_POST['oper']))
$op = $_POST['oper'];
$data = $_POST;
$pk_field = $this->options["colModel"][0]["index"];

// fix for dialog edit v/s inline edit
$id = (isset($data[$pk_field])?$data[$pk_field]:$data["id"]);

// fix for mssql utf8 fix
// if (strpos($this->db_driver,"mssql") !== false)
// $data = array_utf8_decode_recursive($data);

// formatters array for k->v
$is_numeric = array();

Sample test code which i made here is attached.
