Problems With German Characters In Search


whenever i put some german characters into search fields for a gridview it does not find anything.

the database is in utf8_bin

in the main config file i have set charset as utf8 for the database

anyway i did var_dump($criteria) on the search function and it returns �� instead of the german characters, which makes it obvious why it does not find anything.

how to correct this weird behavior?

In the database the characters are saved correctly?

Take a look at this wiki, check if you did all the list.

yes, they are saved correctly and show up correctly on the views.
