Unicode Question

If I set the connections charset to UTF8, will the connection automaticly use unicode, or do I have to specify UseUnicode:=true;

Just wondering what the best practice is concerning Unicode? Should it be set to true all the time?

If you just set Charset to UTF8, you will see data in the UTF8 encoding.

You should leave Charset empty and set UseUnicode = True to make PgDAC decode automatically all data from UTF8 to WideString.
