RemoveAccentsMBS(text as string, IgnoreCase as boolean = false) as string
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
global method String MBS Util Plugin 12.0 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: Removes accents from text.
dim s as string = "L'élève préféré"
dim a as string = RemoveAccentsMBS(s)
dim b as string = RemoveAccentsMBS(s, true)
// check values in debugger
Optionally also ignores case and outputs text in capital letters.
The plugin has a long replacement list of unicode code points to do this.

Useful as a preparation to convert to ASCII text, so all accents are removed before conversion.
