Delphi Error – H2451 and W1061 Narrowing given WideChar constant (#$%04X) to AnsiChar lost information

Delphi Compiler Error

H2451 and W1061 Narrowing given WideChar constant (#$%04X) to AnsiChar lost information

Reason for the Error & Solution

An AnsiChar can only represent the first 256 values in a WideChar, so the second byte of the WideChar is lost when converting it to an AnsiChar. You may wish to use WideChar instead of AnsiChar to avoid information loss.
