Hello, just bought your book.
I’m unable to input emojis in VS code or Android Studio. It shows only raw “td” characters. What could be the reason for it? I reread the entire chapter there is nothing that indicates this possible issue.
What’s the problem? Can you please give me a hint?
What operating system are you using?
And what keyboard language do you have set?
English, Russian keyboard languages.
What are “td” characters? Can you post a screenshot? I’m working on the new Dart Apprentice books so if this is a problem we can solve now I may add some explanation.
In this case for example I want to use flag of Ukraine.
I will not see emoji but instead it will show me UA.
Copied from 🇺🇦 Flag for Ukraine Emoji
Windows 10 and 11 do not support country flag emojis. See: Microsoft Answers - Flag Emoji
I tested on Windows 11 using VS Code, and like you, had
UA for .
Chrome and Firefox display the flags, as they use Google and Twitter emoji libraries for that purpose.
