Genero Browser Client charset

When a Genero Browser Client (GBC) type application starts, the bootstrap mechanism sets the charset needed to handle the application in the front-end.

The charset is defined in the metadata of the bootstrap.html. This file is found in the path to your custom GBC front-end, or in the default GBC client directory $FGLDIR/web_utilities/gbc if no customization is being used. This setting takes precedence over system locale settings.


The code shown in the example comes from the bootstrap.html. The charset encoding the GBC uses by default is the UNICODE standard UTF-8 as it provides support for multiple languages.

The bootstrap mechanism is an internal implementation. For more information, see the Application bootstrap page in Genero Browser Client User Guide.
