Hallo,

I am desperate.
Please can someone tell me how to get the xText Editor to use UTF-8 encoding when displaying and saving files.

It works fine when i set encoding in the preferences but i want/need to force encoding programmatically.

I tried:

UIModule:
	
        public Class<? extends IEncodingProvider> bindIEncodingProvider() {
	    return UTF8EncodingProvider.class;
	}
	
	public void configureIFileSystemAccess(Binder binder) {		
		binder.bind(IFileSystemAccess.class).to(MyFileSystemAccess.class);
	}	


UTF8EncodingProvider:
public class UTF8EncodingProvider implements IEncodingProvider {

	@Override
	public String getEncoding(URI uri) {
		return "UTF-8";
	}
}


MyFileSystemAccess:
public class MyFileSystemAccess extends EclipseResourceFileSystemAccess2 {

	@Override
	protected String getEncoding(IFile file) throws CoreException {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
		return "UTF-8";
	}
	@Override
	protected StringInputStream getInputStream(String contentsAsString,
			String encoding) {
	
		System.out.println("askdfjaölskdj");
		return super.getInputStream(contentsAsString, "UTF-8");
	}
}


I appreciate any help/ideas.
Thx in advance.

Hi Sebastian,

I assume you have to set the encoding as part of a content type
declaration in addition to the things that you did, e.g.

<extension point="org.eclipse.core.contenttype.contentTypes">
<content-type id="myContentType" name="My Content Type"
base-type="org.eclipse.core.runtime.text"
priority="high"
file-extensions="myExt"
default-charset="UTF-8"/>
</..>

Best regards,
Sebastian
