Flash clicktag dropping variables after ampersand

Hi,

This question is very urgent so I have allocated 500 points for someone to help me.

I need to pass the following variables using clicktag but everything after the first & does not get passed into the next url.

banner.swf?clicktag=index.cfm?p=banners_info&banner_id=#banner_id#&target=_self

basically this half of the url is not being passed ...

&banner_id=#banner_id#&target=_self

This is the only part of the page that loads ...

index.cfm?p=banners_info

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

& is being treated as starting of a new variable in querystring....

there is only one way to pass the complete value is replace the "&" with another character in querystring and replace that character with "&" inside flash to get the original complete value.

for example, replace the "&" with "~":
banner.swf?clicktag=index.cfm?p=banners_info~banner_id=#banner_id#&target=_self

and inside flash, replace the "~" with "&" back:
---------
clicktag = String(clicktag).split("~").join("&");
---------

now you would have complete original value inside flash.

You can also replace '&' with '%26' and '=' with '%3D' like this...

banner.swf?clicktag=index.cfm?p=banners_info%26banner_id%3D#banner_id#%26target%3D_self
