How to use non-unicode character set

Post by Sven » Tue 08 Nov 2005 11:17

Our MySQL 4.1 database is set to latin1. The documentation of says that if the Unicode-Property of the MySqlConnection class is set to false (default value), the "default client charset is used". But what do you mean by "default client charset" and how do I set this?

When MySqlConnection.Unicode property is set to false Encoding.Default encoding is used.
This value depends on target client machine regional and language settings.
Moreover, this mode allows MySQLDirect .NET to increase performance of fetching data.
