Can’t believe it’s been 10 years since I published my first YouTube video! To celebrate we’re having a drawing to let a luck person win 3 hours consultation time! You can enter the drawing here. The drawing will be held on July 3rd and we’ll announce the winner on YouTube.
Working on an API call with a friend and we ran into a very weird error “No mapping for the Unicode character exists in the target multi-byte code page”.
I tried working through it but couldn’t figure it out so I asked Charlie Simmons (Tank from the AutoHotkey forum) to give me a hand. He worked through it after a bit of trial & error.
Turns out there was some sort of “illegal” character in the ResponseText field that the WinHTTP com object could not handle. You can get the script below, or download my updated API syntax writer.
VS Code is an amazing editor / IDE! In this AutoHotkey webinar Isaias showed us how to configure it and walked us through some of the great functionality like debugging and GIT integration. I really love how VS code handles hotkeys. In some ways its very similar to AHK Studio in that you can easily type in the search to bring up the hotkeys and then change any one you want. Get the VS code extensions to adapt the hotkeys to other editors.
