Filter on UTF8-Data


We are currently working on the implementation of a Grid (Enterprise Edition)

And everything works well (DB, XML, Page - everything encoded in UTF8). However - when we try to filter something with a german umlaut, we don’t get any data into the grid.

(XML Response <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>

Request was: connector=true&filter=8&col0=&col1=&col2=&col3=&col4=z%C3%BCri&col5=&col6=)

We first thought of a encoding problem but we see that the query reaches the DB:

# Query_time: 1 Lock_time: 0 Rows_sent: 1 Rows_examined: 26246

SELECT COUNT() FROM vw_customer_overview WHERE adr_city LIKE ‘%z�ri%’;

# Query_time: 0 Lock_time: 0 Rows_sent: 0 Rows_examined: 26246

SELECT cust_id , cust_id , cust_name , adr_street , adr_postalcode , adr_city , status , lang_name FROM vw_customer_overview WHERE adr_city LIKE ‘%z�ri%’ LIMIT 0,100;

So first the dataprocessor executed a count(
) which gave him back a result, then the full query was placed but the fetchrow never requested a row. We are basically using the examples that were in the package as a base.

Thank you for your help and Regards


By default, component uses UTF-8 escaping for all data, which is sent to server side. It works normally in all tested cases, but it is possible that the backend logic can’t process it correctly in your case.
You may try to locate the next line inside connector.js


and replace it as


In case of older version of connectors it must be

replaced with
