Working with 😃 Emojis / Emoticons

Emojis or Emoticons are built into all mobile devices and modern desktops. The way they work is that they are actually a very long character code - which automatically works in UTF-8 documents. That is the default in asp.net, so you're good to go.

Showing Emojis instead of true/false

Below you'll see a helper I created called Boolmoji - it will show a ✔️ or ❌ instead of boolean values.
  • Boolmoji(true) ⇒ ✔️
  • Boolmoji(false) ⇒ ❌
