CheckUTF8MBS function

We got a new function which may be helpful for you: CheckUTF8MBS

It works like DefineEncoding with encodings.UTF8, but it makes sure that all the bytes are valid UTF-8. You can just drop in our function and pass the placeholder you need to replace invalid bytes. Like in this example which uses a random string:

// some random bytes dim t as string = RandomBytesStringMBS(20, false) // and some text t = t + " äöü 😀" // checked dim s as string = CheckUTF8MBS(t, "😂") MsgBox s
If you like to try, please email me, so I can send you a new MBS Util Plugin copy. The biggest plugin in space...
