Cockpit Application Character Set (CX)

Top  Previous  Next

The Cockpit application character set (or CX for short, X standing for ACS) is the character set assumed for text strings stored in the variables provided by the Cockpit runtime environment CRE. The CX determines automatic character set conversion for text string parameters (and return values) passed to dll functions or COM methods. This automatic character set conversion is provided by Cockpit adapter functions and methods. The CX can be set with the SetCX function.
