The _MAPUNICODE function returns the Unicode(UTF32) code point value of a mapped ASCII character code.

Syntax: UTFvalue& = _MAPUNICODE(Ascii_code%)

  • The UTF32 values have 4 byte encoding so the return variable should be LONG.
  • The Ascii_code can be any INTEGER value from 0 to 255.
  • Returns can be used to verify or catalog the present Unicode mapping.
  • Since most Unicode mapping occurs above the normal keyboard code values, the Unicode point values cannot be derived from keypresses.
