GetToString method of roUrlTransfer

I am having a problem with the GetToString method of the roUrlTransfer object.

I am parsing the returning website and it has special characters such as upside down question marks, the (1/2) character and likewise.
The GetToString event does not return these characters.

Is there ANYTHING i can do about this? It throws a big monkey wrench in some of my plans.

Thanks,

George

Re: GetToString method of roUrlTransfer

You could GetToFile and then go through the data byte by byte (see roByteArray ReadFile()) and remove or replace the special characters. I don't know if it's the best solution, but it should work.
