IQ Driver + MySQL + UTF-8 = garbage

I am using the latest LinqPad with the IQ Driver to query a MySQL database, but if a field contains extended characters such as "Lidingö" then it shows up as "Lidingö" in the grid.

Is it possible to configure IQ Driver somehow so that it handles UTF-8 correctly?

Linq2Db does work without any issues, but it is slower.


  • [SOLVED] Adding "charset=utf8;" in "Additional connection string options" _AND_ spelling it correctly solved the issue.
