#566 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add encoding suggestions to GUI

Reported by: cnielsen Owned by: martinl
Priority: minor Milestone: 6.4.0
Component: wxGUI Version: 6.4.0 RCs
Keywords: Cc: grass-dev@…
CPU: Unspecified Platform: Unspecified

Description

A vector dataset of mine has non-ascii characters é è à etc. In the database table I got the error: Unable to decode value. Set encoding in GUI Preferences ('Attributes').

This is a helpful message but in the GUI dialog there are no suggestions as to what encoding formats are accepted. Perhaps there could be a couple of suggestions (eg. utf-8, ascii, iso8859-1, koi8-r) to give the user a hint. Perhaps as a mouse-over, or a link to a help page on accepted encodings.

Is r36847 enough to close the ticket?

Probably more serious problem: this variable is global. It would be good to have option to choose if the encoding is global, workspace or layer-related. Martin
