How to display encoded Arabic Symbols (ø§ø ´ø§ø) in HTML/application?
Question

Hello Outsystems forums,

Recently we've got an issue about a displayed text (as a value from an API) that has been encoded before from the original Arabic input format. Here's the sample, the text below displayed from an Expression Outsystems mobile app widget:

I've tried to render it on HTML but it won't display ( my references: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/25564357/arabic-text-not-display-but-charactere-%C3%98-%C3%99-%C3%99-%C3%99-%C3%99-%C3%99%C6%92-display | https://stackoverflow.com/questions/66031696/arabic-text-shows-strange-characters-%C3%98-%C3%99-%C3%99%C3%98%C2%A8%C3%98-%C3%99-%C3%98-%C3%99-%C3%9A%C2%AF%C3%99-%C3%99%C5%A0%C3%98%C2%B3%C3%99-%C3%98%C5%92 ). I've also tried this method by re-encoding into UTF-8 but the results are still the same, reference; https://www.outsystems.com/forums/discussion/16634/rest-encoding-problem/ 


Should I decode it into other Unicode Standard version? can we implement this conversion value on client-side or Ajax method? Thank you.

Hi Aditya,


My suggestion is you tried the function converting utf text to unicode (see this as reference https://www.branah.com/unicode-converter)

Please inform me if this work or not, I may be able to create demo app for you.


Thanks
