The EnableUnicode method enables or disables calls to Unicode system functions. When Unicode is enabled IXFile internally calls Unicode versions of Windows system functions; when Unicode is disabled ANSI versions are called. Unicode is enabled by default on Windows NT, 2000 and XP systems.
void EnableUnicode(
  BOOL Enable        // flag for enabling or disabling Unicode calls
 Enable As Boolean   // flag for enabling or disabling Unicode calls


If this parameter is TRUE, Unicode system functions are called, otherwise ANSI versions are called.

Return Values

The method has no return value.


Unicode support simplifies developing applications for Unicode systems; there is only one version of IXFile library which can be used for both Unicode and non-Unicode applications depending on your needs.

Unicode system calls should not be confused with Unicode methods and Unicode text data; see Unicode Support for more information.

On non-Unicode systems Unicode is disabled and method has no effect.
