How can I convert unicode characters to ascii codes in delphi 7?
Yes we're talking about ASCII codes. My appologies I'm not the Delphi dev here.
For Delphi 7, I'd get the free Unicode Library by Mike Lischke who is the author of Virtual Treeview.
The libary includes a lot of conversion functions to go to and from Unicode, so you can use the ones that make most sense in your application.
Or you can upgrade to Delphi 2009 which has built-in encoding routines, and its own library of conversion functions.
