    Cfdiv Binding Variable with # sign Issue

    Have a problem using cfdiv binding variable, because it contains # in the value, so when it passed in Firefox it truncked anything from # sign on.
    here is the code:
    <form name="myForm" method="post">

    <b><center>Part Name</center></b><br>

    <select name="Avail_Names" id="Avail_Names">

    <cfoutput query="getName">

    <option value ="#getName.name#"> #name#

    </cfoutput>

    </select>
    </form>

    <cfdiv id="nameDiv" bind="url:desc.cfm?name={Avail_Names}"/>


    The code works with IE browser but not in Firefox.
    Not sure what is the way to bypass # in that variable, or I should not use CFDIVE altogether. Appreciate your help.

    Try surrounding your value with the urlEncodedFormat() function.

    For example:
    Code:
    <form name="myForm" method="post">
      <b><center>Part Name</center></b><br>
      
      <select name="Avail_Names" id="Avail_Names">
        <cfoutput query="getName">
          <option value="#urlEncodedFormat( getName.name )#">#name#
        </cfoutput>
      </select>
    </form>
    
    <cfdiv id="nameDiv" bind="url:desc.cfm?name={Avail_Names}"/>
    Let me know how that goes.

    Thanks Greg, it worked. It seems I have to encode it before cfdiv and decode it in the binding url page.

    Appreciate your help. Thank you very much.
