UTF-8 Subject Line

Post by eanon » Mon May 10, 2010 2:19 pm

Hello everybody,

I'm using PopTray (of course) and would like to be able to see the UTF-8 subject line correctly (the ones startings with "=?UTF-8?").

So, does the UTF-8 support will be implemented in the future ? Or is there a plugin somewhere which solve this problem ?

I think this point become more and more crucial, since UTF-8 comes in more and more piece of software everyday...

Soon

A forum search would reveal all that has already been said about this subject

I've seen three threads (with "UTF" keyword), but not any solution. Do you know one ?

OK, searching deeper, I've seen a lot of threads about unicode... So, Poptray doesn't support Unicode (including UTF-8).

On my side, I'm a developer, but, unfortunately, not a Delphi one, so can't do anything for PopTray... Nevertheless, I don't really understand why it would be complicated to decode, at least, UTF-8 (I don't say all Unicode formats, but just UTF-8 which is the most used in the occidental part of the world) in subject line. I've already implemented stuff with UTF-8 support in piece of software written in Perl and VB6 and don't understand the blocking point here.

Could you tell me ?

EDIT : maybe an URL which may help (it talks about Delphi and Unicode) : http://fundementals.sourceforge.net/unicode.html ; found typing "delphi utf-8" in Google.

I'm a computer tech, not a programmer so you should know more about that subject than I

So, we have to wait for the Renier's reply...

If you have a link which contains a specific reply you have in mind, it would be more efficient to tell me... Isn't it ? Since, there are a lot of threads about Unicode (but, I've not seen any real reply)

I didn't said I didn't want to search, I said I searched and didn't found any real reply (the only two things I've seen are a reply where someone said he developped something but kept-it for himself - very smart - and the second one was about the fact Renier doesn't have time to go further with PopTray).

OK, I've installed http://www.ch-software.de/popman/ (which is fully Unicode compliant) beside, on another station, awaiting PopTray supports UTF-8.

However, if a Delphi developer wants to see the link I've provided in a previous message, I think it contains all required to support, at least, UTF-8 in subject line.

eanon, if you have not been reading the forum lately, please search for my recent posts. I am developing a fork of PopTray called PopTrayU which fixes the UTF-8 bugs, and I would welcome you to beta-test the app and/or provide feedback on future design decisions. Unlike the previous reports of fixing said bugs, I'm actually releasing my changes back into the open source community.
