Unicode support allows 4D to handle a wider range of character set in an application. The basic range of Unicode includes several letters, flat drawings, and symbols. As part of the extension, Unicode also includes special HTML-symbol characters like rich icons and emojis. These special characters can be efficiently used in text expression in a way that words sometimes cannot. They can also be used as icons to enhance the User Interface. This technical note explores a few ways on how to take advantage of these special Unicode characters to enrich the application user experience and user interface.
