Extracts the character code of the first character in the input string attribute, and adds its integer value in the character set to the feature as another attribute.

This can be used to obtain the integer code of any character from a list of supported encodings, including non-printable ones.


For example, a CJK unified ideograph 东 character as the first character of the input string attribute and an input string encoding type of Unicode 8-bit(utf-8), would result in a value of 19996 (U+4E1C) being placed in the character code attribute.



Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.

Defining Values

There are several ways to define a value for use in a Transformer. The simplest is to simply type in a value or string, which can include functions of various types such as attribute references, math and string functions, and workspace parameters. There are a number of tools and shortcuts that can assist in constructing values, generally available from the drop-down context menu adjacent to the value field.

Dialog Options - Tables

Transformers with table-style parameters have additional tools for populating and manipulating values.
