hi,I am having a problem of redirecting when the user presses the Enter key as one of the things in the remarks textbox. When the user hits enter key I want to just ignore and submit whatever is keyed in. How do I do that?

Dim query As String = Request.Url.Query.Substring(0, Request.Url.Query.LastIndexOf("&"))

query += "&remarks=" & Trim(remarksTxt.Text)
query = "monthLyreport.aspx" & query
Response.redirect(query)


somebody recommended this b4 redirecting.....
query = HttpUtility.UrlEncode(query)

but this results in my URL being
monthLyreport.aspx%3fA%3dABC%26B%3dABC%26C%3d6%26D%3d06%26remarks%3dhaha

instead of
monthLyreport.aspx?A=ABC&B=ABC&C=6&D=06&remarks=haha

i.e
? is replaced by %3f
& is replaced by %26
= is replaced by %3d

Thanks in advance

hai,
Use Server.UrlEncode method

Dim query As String =Server.UrlEncode( Request.Url.Query.Substring(0, Request.Url.Query.LastIndexOf("&")) )

query += "&remarks=" & Server.UrlEncode(Trim(remarksTxt.Text) )
query = "monthLyreport.aspx" &Server.UrlEncode(query )
Response.redirect(query)

Wait, I tried the above solution. It was of no help, It still couldn't work. However, a friend recommended using he approach below: it worked.

'for the sending page
            Dim bQuery As Byte()
            Dim sQuery As String
            bQuery = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(Trim(remarksTxt.Text))
            sQuery = Convert.ToBase64String(bQuery)
            query += "&remarks=" & sQuery
            query = "monthlyReport.aspx" & query
            Replace(query, "", "%20")
            Response.Redirect(query)
'for the receivng page
  Dim bQuery As Byte()
        Dim sQuery As String = "None"
        If Request("Remarks") <> "" Then
            bQuery = Convert.FromBase64String(Request.QueryString("Remarks").ToString)
            sQuery = Encoding.ASCII.GetString(bQuery)
        End If
