I have a proto message that I have defined. I'm consuming the message on
OSX using C++ and producing it on windows using C#.
I'm using release 3.0.0 of Google.protobuf (NuGet on windows, compiled and
built on OSX).
I have read that Protobuf stores UTF-8 strings. I realize that native C#
strings are UTF-16. I assumed the C# library would
take care of the conversion from UTF-16 to UTF-8 but that doesn't seem to
be the case. The online examples that I've found
seem to just assign a string the variable (wiffName) but that doesn't seem
Can someone point out where I'm going wrong and how get around this? If the
library doesn't handle the conversion how should
I go about changing a UTF-16 string into a UTF-8 string in C#? Any help is
int64 TotalXicSets = 1;
string wiffName = 2;
var xsetHeader = new XicSetHeader();
xsetHeader.TotalXicSets = xsetVec.Count;
xsetHeader.WiffName = "myWiffNameHolder";
using (var stream = File.Create(FileOutName(oPath))) //
MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream())
// This is being passed a pointer ifstream in a good state to the
encoded proto message
XicContainer::XicContainer(std::istream *in): m_xheader(new XicHeader())
// m_xheader is a pointer of type XicHeader and initialized above
C++ Error Message:
*[libprotobuf ERROR google/protobuf/wire_format_lite.cc:532] String field
'XicHeader.wiffName' contains invalid UTF-8 data when parsing a protocol
buffer. Use the 'bytes' type if you intend to send raw bytes.*
