Passing param settings in as a parameter value in <A>
Posted on 1998-09-02
This question is really an HTML one, but it also involves CGI, hence my posting it here.
I want to create an <A> link that passes as a parameter values, some values that will be passed to a further page. For example, normally I would have some like this in my page:
<A HREF="/cgi/cgiproc?nocfile=/manage/bdy_ip.htm&sPage=bdy_hlth.htm&sPageDesc=%22Health+Check%22&sPageIcon=/img/healthck.jpg" target="_self">Other</A>
Here I'm passing parameters called:
with respective values of:
%22Health+Check%22 (equivalent to "Health Check")
What if I want to pass a parameter with the name:
and the value (containing settings for two other parameters)
So that the HTML page can use the value of sReqParams when calling another page to pass the value for sLogin and sDN parameters to the second page.
I've tried various quoting strategies and nothing seems to work.
