public:
 static cli::array <System::Text::EncodingInfo ^> ^ GetEncodings();
public static System.Text.EncodingInfo[] GetEncodings ();
static member GetEncodings : unit -> System.Text.EncodingInfo[]
Public Shared Function GetEncodings () As EncodingInfo()

Returns

Examples

The following example checks the values of the Boolean properties of each encoding.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Text;
int main()
{
   
   // Print the header.
   Console::Write( "CodePage identifier and name     " );
   Console::Write( "BrDisp   BrSave   " );
   Console::Write( "MNDisp   MNSave   " );
   Console::WriteLine( "1-Byte   ReadOnly " );
   
   // For every encoding, get the property values.
   System::Collections::IEnumerator^ myEnum = Encoding::GetEncodings()->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
   {
      EncodingInfo ^ ei = safe_cast<EncodingInfo ^>(myEnum->Current);
      Encoding^ e = ei->GetEncoding();
      Console::Write( "{0,-6} {1,-25} ", ei->CodePage, ei->Name );
      Console::Write( "{0,-8} {1,-8} ", e->IsBrowserDisplay, e->IsBrowserSave );
      Console::Write( "{0,-8} {1,-8} ", e->IsMailNewsDisplay, e->IsMailNewsSave );
      Console::WriteLine( "{0,-8} {1,-8} ", e->IsSingleByte, e->IsReadOnly );
   }
}

Remarks

This method returns a list of supported encodings, uniquely distinguished by code page. For a table that lists the supported encodings, see the Encoding class topic.

Note

The list of supported encodings returned by the GetEncodings method does not include any additional encodings made available by any EncodingProvider implementations that were registered by calls to the RegisterProvider method.

On the .NET Framework, encodings 50220 and 50222 are both associated with the name "iso-2022-jp", but they are not identical. Encoding 50220 converts half-width Katakana characters to full-width Katakana characters, whereas encoding 50222 uses a shift-in/shift-out sequence to encode half-width Katakana characters. The display name for encoding 50222 is "Japanese (JIS-Allow 1 byte Kana - SO/SI)" to distinguish it from encoding 50220, which has the display name "Japanese (JIS)".

If you request the encoding name "iso-2022-jp", the .NET Framework returns encoding 50220. However, the encoding that is appropriate for your app depends on the preferred treatment of the half-width Katakana characters.

To get a specific encoding, you should use the GetEncoding method.

GetEncodings is sometimes used to present the user with a list of encodings in a File Save as dialog box. However, many non-Unicode encodings are either incomplete and translate many characters to "?", or have subtly different behavior on different platforms. Consider using UTF-8 or UTF-16 as the default.
