View Full Version : Netscape querystring

04-03-2003, 05:52 PM
I pass values in the querystring and everything works fine for IE 5.0+ and NS 6.0+ but NS4.5-4.7x doesn't like spaces in the querystring variables. All the other browers automagically change the spaces to the approiate %20 but not NS. I could write a swap function to do this, but I wanted to post here first to see if you guys have had this problem. Thanks, all help is appreciated.

If by swap function, you mean you escape the string yourself, then yeah, that's the solution.

Why not just replace the spaces in your variable values with %20?

Most server-side languages have a URL format function; if not, a UDF shouldn't be that hard for you to create.

I guess I was just being lazy, as we programmers get. Yeah, I guess I was looking for some magic bean solution. Thanks guys :D
