Identify ASCII or ALT-codes of characters in docs?



  • Is there any provision to identify the ASCII or other character code for specific characters in the document? Some of the viewable characters are unfamiliar, and some are not visible. It would be very helpful if you could use the cursor to select a character and see its code(s), possibly near the Line/Col field at the bottom of the window.

    Not built-in.

    I present a script in https://community.notepad-plus-plus.org/post/44448 which shows the codepoint (for both ASCII and Unicode characters).

    Use Plugins Admin to install PythonScript, then create a new script in PythonScript. Then run this script.

    You can change whether it’s on-demand (show char only when you run the script), or “live” (update every time cursor moves) by comment/uncomment the last two lines.
