C# | How to change the Output Encoding Scheme of the Console
  • Last Updated : 28 Jan, 2019

Given the normal Console in C#, the task is to change the Output Encoding Scheme of the Console.

Approach: This can be done using the OutputEncoding property in the Console class of the System package in C#.

Program 1: Getting the value of Output Encoding Scheme




// C# program to illustrate the
// Console.OutputEncoding Property
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
  
namespace GFG {
  
class Program {
  
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
  
        // Get the Output Encoding Scheme
        Console.WriteLine("Current Output Encoding Scheme: {0}",
                                        Console.OutputEncoding);
    }
}
}

Output:



Program 2: Setting the value of Output Encoding Scheme




// C# program to illustrate the
// Console.OutputEncoding Property
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
  
namespace GFG {
  
class Program {
  
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
  
        // Get the Output Encoding Scheme
        Console.WriteLine("Current Output Encoding Scheme: {0}",
                                        Console.OutputEncoding);
  
        // Set the Output Encoding Scheme to ASCII
        Console.OutputEncoding = Encoding.ASCII;
  
        // Get the Output Encoding Scheme
        Console.WriteLine("Current Output Encoding Scheme: {0}",
                                        Console.OutputEncoding);
    }
}
}

Output:
