Code Pages (Compact 2013)

3/28/2014

A code page is a table that describes a character set that the OS uses to display characters in a specific language.

Languages that do not use Unicode encoding require a code page to support their character sets. Languages with character sets that use Unicode encoding do not require a code page. For more information, see Code Pages on MSDN.

Windows Embedded Compact enables code page support based on the locales that you add to your OS. In some circumstances, the default set of code pages may not provide all of the required support. You can add additional code pages to an OS design for additional support, but you cannot download code pages to a target device.

To display Simplified Chinese characters that use the GB18030-2005 character encoding, add the GB18030 data converter to your OS. For more information, see Simplified Chinese Catalog Items and Sysgen Variables.

Source code for this feature is available at %_WINCEROOT%\PUBLIC\COMMON\OAK\files.
