See Hex value of character at cursor
Rob McDonell last edited by
Would it be possible to show the Hex value of the character currently under the cursor in the status bar at the bottom?
It’s the one feature I sorely miss when I changed from PSPad to Notepad++.
The only way I can currently find to see the hex value is to actually convert the text file to Hex. But I don’t really want to convert anything, I just want to be able to see precisely what the Hex value of a single character is.
Thanks for all your hard work on this excellent program.

Hello, @rob-mcdonell and All,
You could use the @Peterjones’s Python script, provided in this post :
Each time this Python script is called, it displays, in the leftmost zone of the status bar, the character currently at the right of the caret/cursor, of the current file, even in case of a selection, as well as its Unicode code-point, both in hexadecimal and decimal values !
It works with any Unicode character, even for those with code-point over the
BMP( Basic Multilingual Plane )
To get the default language name again, just switch to an other tab and switch back
You may prefer my version with a slightly different layout, here :
Or this other version, of @alan-kilborn, with a possible replacement of the aimed character :
