View Full Version : I cant read passed data in Greek

Hi all and my best wishes for the holidays.

I have a small script that places passed data to a textbox and although it works ok with english it cant show greek corectrly.

The script in the form is:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"><!--
function getParm(string,parm) {
// returns value of parm from string
var startPos = string.indexOf(parm + "=");
if (startPos > -1) {
startPos = startPos + parm.length + 1;
var endPos = string.indexOf("&",startPos);
if (endPos == -1)
endPos = string.length;
return unescape(string.substring(startPos,endPos));
return '';

var passed = location.search.substring(1);

document.displayform.textareaname.value = getParm(passed,'textareaname');

and data are passed from:

<td width="200">
<input name="textareaname" type="hidden" id="textareaname" value="2908.ER" />
<input name="submit" type="submit" class="Button" id="submit" value="ΦΟΡΜΑ ΕΝΔΙΑΦΕΡΟΝΤΟΣ" />

i have to admit that i m less than capable of doing any scripting so any help would be welcome. Detailed help would be perfect.

Thanks alot
