LogCat in Eclipse and UTF-8 ???

Postby darolla » Fri Mar 05, 2010 7:48 pm


is it possible to set LogCat in Eclipse to UTF-8 ???

Log.d("MyActivity", "Tu mal lieber die Möhrchen");
System.out.println("Tu mal lieber die Möhrchen");
Toast.makeText(MyActivity.this, "Tu mal lieber die Möhrchen", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

The toast shows the String correctly.

LogCat (using Log or System.out.println) shows crap like this:

03-05 18:37:01.923: INFO/System.out(936): Tu ma lieber die Möhrchen
03-05 18:37:01.913: DEBUG/MyActivity(936): Tu ma lieber die Möhrchen

I tried Run Configurations -> Common -> Console Encoding -> Other -> UTF-8
