Current system codepage.


Source position: systemh.inc line 722

var DefaultSystemCodePage: TSystemCodePage;


DefaultSystemCodePage is used to determine how CP_ACP is interpreted; it is what the program considers to be the current system codepage.

It is initialized to the default system codepage.

The DefaultSystemCodePage value may be set using SetMultiByteConversionCodePage. That means that it is not a good idea to use its value to determine the real OS "default system code page".

Note that if you change DefaultSystemCodePage, you should call TEncoding.FreeEncodings to free the encodings that were created. They will be recreated with the correct (new) DefaultSystemCodePage.
