Detailed Description

A abstraction for the string to data encoding in ID3v1 tags.

ID3v1 should in theory always contain ISO-8859-1 (Latin1) data. In practice it does not. TagLib by default only supports ISO-8859-1 data in ID3v1 tags.

However by subclassing this class and reimplementing parse() and render() and setting your reimplementation as the default with ID3v1::Tag::setStringHandler() you can define how you would like these transformations to be done.

Warning
It is advisable not to write non-ISO-8859-1 data to ID3v1 tags. Please consider disabling the writing of ID3v1 tags in the case that the data is not ISO-8859-1.

Member Function Documentation

virtual String TagLib::ID3v1::StringHandler::parse ( const ByteVector data) const
virtual

Decode a string from data. The default implementation assumes that data is an ISO-8859-1 (Latin1) character array.

virtual ByteVector TagLib::ID3v1::StringHandler::render ( const String s) const
virtual

Encode a ByteVector with the data from s. The default implementation assumes that s is an ISO-8859-1 (Latin1) string. If the string is does not conform to ISO-8859-1, no value is written.

Warning
It is recommended that you not override this method, but instead do not write an ID3v1 tag in the case that the data is not ISO-8859-1.
